In this article we consider how Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich's Upper Room Pentecost Vision of Acts 2:1-4 reveals to us what we can expect during God's coming, promised New Worldwide Pentecost of Acts 2:17-21 - when He pours out His Holy Spirit upon ALL FLESH - ALL MANKIND, during a time when He turns His moon to blood and darkens His sun.
We consider how her vision connects to Marian Apparitions such as Fatima and how this pertains to the end of the age of this world; when our God comes and restores Earth to Heaven as He has promised He will do (Revelation 21:1-8,) by restoring mankind in the Image and Likeness of His Holy Spirit of Truth, as He pours out His Holy Spirit of Truth in both Fire and in Rivers of Life-Giving Water upon "all flesh" - "all mankind" , which we can understand the Three Days of Darkness and Illumination of Conscience will prepare us to receive; which we can understand will be confirmed by God's promised Permanent Sign of the Cross of the Son of Man (King Jesus) in the sky (Mt. 24:29-30, Diary of St. Faustina #83-84).
Before considering Bl. Anne's vision, we first realize that the Acts 2:17-21 New Worldwide Pentecost Great Miracle promised by God - when He pours out His Holy Spirit of Truth upon "all flesh" - "all mankind" -- has not yet happened for when it does happen, our God will turn His moon to blood and darken His sun. (which did not happen during the Upper Room Pentecost of the 120, because if it had, it would have been mentioned in Scripture - see Acts 1:12-15, 2:1-4, and 2:17-21, Joel 3:1-5.)
After the Upper Room Pentecost, our first pope, St. Peter, echoed the prophesy of the prophet Joel as found in Joel 3:1-5. And that prophesy, was of God's promised New Worldwide Pentecost Great Miracle - the time when God will pour out His Holy Spirit of Truth upon "all flesh" upon "all mankind" when God turns His moon to blood and darkens His sun -- which we know is yet to come, because there is no mention of our God turning His moon to blood, nor darkening His sun, on, during, or after the day of His Upper Room Pentecost of the 120 in Acts 2:1-16.
From Scripture study we can understand that what the Early Apostles experienced during the Upper Room Pentecost of Acts 2:1-16, is to happen again, but upon the whole world - upon "all flesh"- in the New Way, and we know that we (the whole world) will experience, in the Last Days, God's promised New Worldwide Pentecost Great Miracle on a worldwide level as is foretold in Acts 2:17-21 - a time when God turns His moon to blood and darkens His sun!
To understand that this time is nearing I encourage you to read NASA's article dated September 2nd, 2020, stating that the moon is turning red due to the mineral "hematite" which in Greek means "blood"! In this way we can understand that God's New WW Pentecost Great Miracle outpouring of His Holy Spirit of Truth, upon "all flesh" is near indeed- coming IN OUR TIME!!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
With this in mind, we meditate on the vision given by God to Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich in order to understand what to expect during God's coming promised New Worldwide Pentecost Great Miracle of Acts 2:17-21 , by what was experienced by the 120 First Apostles of the Upper Room Pentecost of Acts 1:12-15, Acts 2:1-4.
I include Scriptural passages and some commentary in parenthesis which help expound on what was happening during the Upper Room Pentecost, which helps to understand God's coming promised, New Worldwide Pentecost Great Miracle of Acts 2:17-21 - when He pours out His Holy Spirit of Truth upon all flesh, when He turns HIs moon to blood and darkens His sun. I suggest that is very helpful to read the vision through once, and then read it again, looking up the Scripture passages the 2nd time.
Upper Room Pentecost of Acts 2:1-4 Vision of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich
“Toward morning I saw about the Mount of Olives (see Zech 14:1-5, Rev 19) a glittering white Cloud of Light (signifies Voice of God being clearly heard by His Children in the Last Days see - Rev 1:7, Ex 19:9, Acts 1:8-11, Deut 4:11-12, 2 Mac 2:8) coming down from Heaven and drawing near to the house. In the distance it appeared to me like a round ball borne along on a soft, warm breeze. (see Gen 2:7, Acts 2:1-4, 17-21) But coming nearer, it looked larger and floated over the city like a luminous mass of fog until it stood above Sion and the house of the Last Supper (the Upper Room). It seemed to contract and to shine with constantly increasing brightness, until at last with a rushing, roaring noise as of wind, (Acts 2:1-4, Gen 2:6-7, Ez 37:9-10, Acts 2:17-21) It sank like a thunder cloud (Ex 19:19, Rev 11:19, Rev 8:5, Sirach 43:16, Ps 18:14 -signifying God's Voice being heard like thunder) floating low in the atmosphere. I saw many Jews, who espied the Cloud (Ex 13:21-22, Deut 4:11-12, Acts 1:8-11, 2 Maca 2:8, Rev 1:7, Heb 8:8-13, Wis 18:14-25), hurrying in terror to the Temple I myself experienced a childlike anxiety as to where I should hide if the stroke (lightning - Jesus who is Light coming to us instantly - in the power of His Holy Spirit of Truth - see Ps 77:18, Ex 19:18-20, Mt 28:2-3, Lk 10:18-19, Is 5:6-9, Jn 1:1-14, Jn 14::6) were to follow, for the whole thing was like a storm (lightning, thunder, hail, dark clouds, rumblings - Scripture reveals a storm represents when God's Voice is heard from the cloud - Ex 19:18-20, Ex 19:16-25, Ex 13:21-22, Rev 11:19 - 12:2, 10-12, 17, 2 Thess 2:8, Rev 19:12-15, Ez 37:9-10, Eph 6:12, 16-17, 2 Cor 10:3-5 ) that had suddenly gathered, that instead of rising from the earth came down from Heaven, that was Light (Jn 8:12, Jn 1:1-14, Jn 8:44, 31-32, 1 Jn 3:8, Jn 8:36, Jn 18:38, 36-37, Rev 12:2, 10-12, 17) instead of dark, that instead of thundering came down with a rushing wind. I felt that rushing motion. It was like a warm breeze full of power to refresh and invigorate. (Gen 2:6-7, Jn 3:3-8, Acts 2:1-4, 2:17-21, Ez 37:9-14)
The luminous Cloud (see Mt 17:5, Ex 13:21-22, Ex 19:9, Deut 4:11-12, Acts 2:1-8, Acts 1:8-11, Rev 1:7, 2 Mac 2:8, Heb 8:8-13, 12:26-29) descended low over the house, and with the increasing sound, the Light became brighter. I saw the house and its surroundings more clearly, while the Apostles, the disciples and the women became more and more silent, more deeply recollected. Afterward there shot from the rushing Cloud Streams of white Light down upon the house and its surroundings.
The Streams intersected one another in sevenfold rays, and below each intersection resolved into fine threads of light and fiery drops. The point at which the 7 streams intersected was surrounded by a RAINBOW LIGHT in which floated a luminous figure with outstretched wings, or rays of light that looked like wings, attached to the shoulders. In that same instant the whole house and its surroundings were penetrated through and through with Light. The five-branched lamp no longer shone.
(The Rainbow (or "halo") is God's Covenant Sign of Gen 9:13-17, Ez 1:27-28, Rev 4, especially 4:3, and we can understand the Light to be poured out in Rivers of Life Giving Water as Scripture reveals to us: (God's Rivers of LIfe- Giving Water - see Gen 2:16-17, Heb 13:8, Is 46:10, Is 43:18-21, Jn 7:37-39, Jn 14:16-18, Jn 16:13, Eph 5:25-27, 31-32, Rev 21:2, 5-6, 22:1-5, Ez 47:1-12, Ps 1, Is 61:1-4, 11:1-4, Rev 21:1-8, Rom 5:5, Jer 23:29, Jer 5:14, Rev 11:5, 12:2, 10-12, 17, Rev 20:10, Rev 21:8, 2 Pet 3:7)
The assembled Faithful (see Acts 1:12-15) were ravished in ecstasy. Each involuntarily threw back his head and raised his eyes eagerly on high, while into the mouth of every one there flowed a Stream of Light (Holy Spirit of Truth of God - Jn 14:6, Jn 1:1-14) like a burning Tongue of Fire (see Is 5:6-9, Rev 4:1-5, Acts 2:17-21,see Ps 81:11, Jer 5:14, Jer 23:29, Rev 11:5, 12:10-12, 17, Rev 20:10, Is 55:11, Mt 10:8) ).
It looked as if they were breathing, as if they were eagerly drinking in the Fire and as if their ardent desire flamed forth from their mouth to meet the entering flame (See Gen 2:6-7, Jn 7:37-39, Song of Songs 8:6, Acts 2:17-21, Heb 12:26-29 which reveal that God's Divine Flame of Love - His Holy Spirit of Truth - comes in Fire and nourishes us like Rivers of Life - Giving Water).
The sacred Fire (Deut 4:11-12, Jer 23:29, Jer 5:14, Rev 11:5, 12:2, 10-12,17, Eph 6:12, 16-17, 2 Cor 10:3-6, Rev 20:10) was poured forth also upon the disciples and the women present in the antechamber, and thus the resplendent Cloud gradually dissolved as if in a rain of light. (Rainbow? - see the following) The Flames descended on each in different colors and in different degrees of intensity.
(With this in mind we consider the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima when the witnesses that day say they saw the colors of the Rainbow covering the people - "Miracle of the Sun" DVD which can be purchased from the Blue Army World Apostolate of Fatima Shrine - also see Rainbow Scripture of: Gen 9:11-17, Rev 2:1-3, and Ez 1:28 - and on this website tab titled, "Marian Apparitions" for Our Lady of Fatima prophetic message in order to understand, on a deeper level, the meaning of the rainbow colors poured out upon God's children at Fatima in 1917 and during Bl. Anne's vision.
After that effusion of heavenly Light (which we can understand to signify God's Holy Spirit of Truth being poured out) a joyous courage pervaded the assembly. All were full of emotion, as if intoxicated with joy and confidence. (see Acts 2:11-31, John 2:1-12 the New Wine of God's Holy Spirit of Truth, given at the Wedding Feast of Cana, causing joyful sober intoxication which we can understand to be a foreshadowing of the Coming of God's Holy Spirit of Truth upon His Bride during the Wedding Feast of the Lamb in the Last Days of the age of this world - see Rev 19:12-25, Mt 4:4, Ps 81:11, Is 55:11, Mt 10:8, 1 Cor 14:5-6, 24-25, Zech 8:23, Rev 21:8, Jer 23:29, Jer 5:14, Rev 11:5, 12:2, 10-12, 17, Rev 20:10 - our God pours out His Holy Spirit of Truth upon His Bride like Rivers of Life- Giving Water, who then goes forth from the mouth of His Bride in the fiery Truth of His Word, in the power of the Sword of His Holy Spirit of Truth, Who slays satan and all of his lies and deception - see Eph 6:12, 16-17, 2 Cor 10:3-6)
They gathered around the Blessed Virgin who was, I saw, the only perfectly calm one that retrained a quiet, holy self-possession. The Apostles embraced one another and urged by joyous confidence, exclaimed: “What were we? What are we now?” (see 2 Cor 5:17, Rom 12:2, 2 Cor 10:3-6, 1 Cor 2:16, Num 12:8, 24:15-17, Jer 16:13, Mt 4:1-4, 2 Pet 3:7, Jer 23:29, Jn 14:16-18, Rev 21:8, Rev 20:10, Jn 8:44, 31-32, 1 Jn 3:8, Jn 8:36, Jn 18:38, 36-37)
The holy women too embraced. The disciples in the side halls were similarly affected, and the Apostle hastened out to them. A new life full of joy, of confidence, and of courage had been infused into all. (Gal 5:22-23, Is 11:1-4). Their joy found vent in thanksgiving. They ranged for prayer, gave thanks and praised God with great emotion. The Light meanwhile vanished. (Luke 17:20-21, Jn 1:1, 14, Jn 17:17, 18-23, Mk 10:8,- the Kingdom of God's Holy Spirit of Truth (Heaven) is within you when you become One Flesh with our Triune God!)
Since God is the same yesterday, today and forevermore (Heb 13:8), from Scripture (Gen 2:16-17, Is 5:6-9, Acts 2:1-4, Heb 8:8-13, Heb 12:26-29, Wis 18:14-25, 1 Cor 15:51-57, Jn 7:37-39, Acts 2:17-21, Rev 21:8, 2 Pet 3:7, Jer 23:29, Jer 5:14, Rev 11:5, 12:2, 10-12, 17, Rev 20:10, Rom 5:5,) and from Anne Catherine Emmerich's vision we can know ahead of time exactly that our Triune God is going to come and conclude HIs promised New Everlasting Covenant of One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace with HIs Bride, in the Last Days, in the power of the pouring out of the Breath of Life of His Holy Spirit of Truth, in order to restore mankind in the Image and Likeness of His Holy Spirit of Truth -- and in this way, by correcting the conscience of mankind in HIs truth, He conquers satan and all of his lies and deception - in a Sovereign Way - manifesting His New Earth and New Heaven of Revelation 21:1-8, where there is no weeping, mourning, tears or death; a time when "deceivers of every sort find their lot in the burning Pool of Fire and Sulfur of God's fiery Word of Truth". (Rev 21:1-8, Jer 23:29, Is 30:33, Jn 8;44, 31-32, 1 Jn 3:8, Rev 20:10)
The following is also found in the Life of Christ book which reveals Bl. Anne Catherine's vision.
"Peter delivered an instruction to the disciples and sent several of them out to the inns of the Pentecost guests…………….they too received the grace of the Holy Ghost. (see Numbers 11:25-26). An extraordinary movement pervaded all nature. Good people were roused interiorly, while the wicked became timid, uneasy, and still more stiff-necked. ………they all became intimate and kindly disposed to the disciples so that the latter, intoxicated with joy announced to them the Promise of the Holy Ghost as fulfilled. Then too did they become conscious of a change within their own souls and as the summons of the disciples, they gathered around the Pool of Bethsaida (Bethesda). (see Acts 2:12-21 and Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa's book titled, "Sober Intoxication of the Spirit: Filled With the Fullness of God, I and II")
Anne Catherine Emmerich goes onto say that they baptized the new members of the Church in this pool “Bethsaida” which means “House of Mercy”, or "House of Grace"
"House of Mercy" - See 2 Mac 2:8 for when "the Cloud", which signifies the return of God's Holy Spirit of Truth in the "Time of God's Mercy" (in HIs Bethsaida Pool) - think, "Divine Mercy Sunday" and all the grace that has come and will come from this devotion and specifically what this particular feast day of our God will play in reference to Fountain of Mercy on the feast of Divine Mercy Sunday when all the floodgates of Heaven are open; when all those who confess their sin with sorrow and clinging to God's mercy during Holy Communion (as Jesus to do) will be washed clean - cleansed from all sin and all punishment due to sin.
The Day of Merciful Love of God which prepares mankind for the coming Three Days of Darkness, Illumination of Conscience, Great Miracle, and His Permanent Sign of the Cross of the Son of Man - in the Heavens (Mt 24:29-30 and Diary of St. Faustina #83-84)
“House of Grace” and is located by the Sheep Gate – the Healing Center of God’s graces. (consider how on April 7th, 2024 the feast of Divine Mercy Sunday during Mass, God’s House of Mercy, the floodgates of Heaven are opened – pouring out God’s Holy Spirit of Truth in HIs merciful love upon His children) followed by April 8th, 2024 the New Moon Feast of Nissan 1, when God gives His 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse on the very anniversary day of when He delivered His children from Egypt (from those who had hardened hearts). This day of April 8th, the day after the feast of Divine Mercy Sunday in 2024 is the day of God's 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" (think Wedding Feast day) effect total solar eclipse, as well as His New Moon Feast, the feast which indicated the exact day that God would deliver His children the Israelites out of the bondage of the slavery of sin, from those who had hardened hearts against God's Holy Spirit of Truth; as well as it is the Annunciation Feast (think conception of Christ within our own hearts and minds God's New Temple (1 Cor 6:19, Rev 2:120-12, 17, Jn 2:21) as birthed to us through Mother Mary, the Women of Revelation 12:2, 10-12, 17 in these Last Days as God comes to conclude (Heb 8:8-13, 12:26-39) His promised New Everlasting Covenant of One Heart and mind of Truth and Peace through the outpouring of His promised New Worldwide Pentecost which overcomes, in final triumphant victory, satan and all of his lies and deception within the heart and mind of mankind.
April 8th of 2024 is also the last day of the great feast of Islam of Ramadan, - a day when all muslims go to Mecca after having fasted and prayed for days, in hopes of getting as close as possible to God (consider Jn 15:14-15).
It is also the "8th" Day which in Scripture reveals the circumcision of the Heart. the Old Covenant was the circumcision of the genitalia, but the New Covenant is circumcision of the Heart. (see Proverbs 4:23, Jn 7:37-39, Mt 15:18-29, Mt 15:11, Acts 2:17-21, Rev 14:5, Ps 51:13-15)
Continuation of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich's Vision
"Jesus miracle story also tells how many people sought the Bethesda Pool’s healing powers. The first person to enter the pool when the Waters (signifying the "Rivers of Life-Giving Waters of God's Holy Spirit of Truth - see is 43:18-21, Jn 7:37-39, Eph 5:25-27, 31-32, Rev 21:2, 5-6, Rev 22:1-2, Ez 47:1-12, Psalm 1, Is 61:1-4, Is 11:1-4) were stirred up would supposedly be cured of his or her ailment (consider God's Waters, His Rivers of Life - Giving Water of His Holy Spirit of Truth poured out into our hearts - Jn 7:37-39 - healing us as at the Marian apparition site of Lourdes and the fact that "Guadalupe" means "River"). But, the paralytic tells Jesus, he can never get into the Water quickly enough. So, Jesus immediately cures him, and he is able to get up and walk. This story about Jesus’ miracle suggests a long history of healing at the site. Roman medicinal baths constructed at the Bethesda Pool only a century or two later reflect this continued tradition. When Christians controlled Jerusalem in the Byzantine and Crusader periods, they liked to mark the sites of Jesus’ miracles and other important events in His life, so they added a chapel and churches that now cover the Bethesda Pool complex. So why a pool with two basins? The archaeological evidence shows that the southern basin had broad steps with landings, indicating that it was indeed a mikveh (Jewish cleansing bath). The northern basin provided a reservoir, or otzer, to continually replenish and repurify the mikveh with fresh water flowing south through the dam between them. (see: Eph 5:25-27, 31-32, Is 43:18-21, Ez 36:25-28, Deut 30:6, Rev 21:2, 5-6, Rev 22:1-5, Ez 47:1-2, as it applies to Rev 19:9-25, Jn 7:37-39, Jn 14:16-18, Eph 5:25-27, 31-32, Rev 21:2, 5-6, Psalm 1, Is 61:1-4, Is 11:1-4 revealing ahead of time to us of God's New Worldwide Pentecost great Miracle of Acts 2:17-21; given to us in these Last Days) Jerusalem’s pilgrims would flock to the Bethesda Pool and Siloam Pool to purify themselves in these public mikva’ot and, at times, to seek healing.
This all appears to bring to mind God's coming, prophesied, promised New Worldwide Pentecost of the Rivers of Life - Giving Water of His Holy Spirit of Truth as revealed in the Bible in: Is 43:18-21, Jn 14:16-18, John 7:37 – 39, Acts 2:17-21, Rom 5:5, Jn 16:13 being poured out upon "all flesh" upon "all mankind" - "into our hearts and minds - God's New Temple; in order to fulfill His promise of coming and "concluding" His New Everlasting Covenant of One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace with us, His Bride.
(Deut 30:6, Jer 31:31-35, Ez 36:25-28, Jer 32:38-41, Ez 37:26-28, Jn 17:17, 18-23, Jn 1:1, 14, Mk 10:8, Jn 14:16-18, Jn 8:44, 31-32, Jn 14:6, 1 Jn 3:8, Jn 18:38, 36-37, Rev 22:16-17, 1 Pet 2:18, Eph 6:12, 16-17, 2 Cor 10:3-6, Jer 23:29, Jer 5:14, Rev 11:5, 12:2, 10-12, 17, Acts 2:17-21, 1 Cor 14:5-6,. 24-25, Rev 21:8, Heb 8:8-13, 12:26-29, 1 Cor 15:51-52, Rev 20:10)
"I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (see Jn 7:37-39, Jn 14:16-18, Ps 81:11, Rev 3:20-23, Rev 19:12-25, Mt 4:4, Ps 81:11, is 55:11, Mt 10:8) For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit (of Truth) to those who ask Him? (Luke 11:9-13, Jn 14:16-18, Jn 14:6, Jn 17:17)
We know God's promised New Worldwide Pentecost is coming! The question is, "How prepared for it will we be?"
God reveals the Vision of the coming Springtime of March, April and May of 2024; especially of the Great Spiritual Convergence of April 8th, 2024, and so I share it with you in hopes that you too see the significance of it all and we, God's Bride, prepare for it's coming by repenting of sin (especially through the great grace of the feast of Divine Mercy Sunday), and receiving His Holy Spirit of Truth in the New Way on Pentecost which He has promised to give (Is 43:18-19, Rev 21:2, 5-6, Eph 5:25-27, 31-32, Ez 47:1-12, psa 1, Is 61:1-4, 11:1-4) so that we are, as Scripture reveals, His trees, His Oaks of Righteousness -- trees speaking forth His fiery Word of Truth to all we meet, in the power of His Holy Spirit of Truth, so that all mankind can be prepared for His Final Coming in Glorious Truth --- which appears might very well be in 2024.
Jesus told St. Faustina that the message of Divine Mercy would prepare the world for HIs Final Coming!
Before the Day of Justice, I am sending the Day of Mercy.
You will prepare the world for My final coming.
Speak to the world about My mercy ... It is a sign for the end times. After it will come the Day of Justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fountain of My mercy.
My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls and especially for poor sinners. On that day, the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the Fount of My Mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day, all the Divine Floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me
even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind be it of man, or of angel will be able to fathom it. Throughout all eternity, everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy. Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy. Throughout all eternity the Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness. It is My desire that It be celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy. (Diary of St. Faustina #699)
Tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the Day of My justice,
is near. (Diary #965)
I am prolonging the time of mercy for the sake of sinners. But woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation. (Diary #1160)
He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy, must pass through the door of My justice
The Lord answered my prayer and said: "Write down the Vision; make it plain upon tablets, so that the one who reads it may run (with it). For the Vision is a witness for the Appointed Time, a testimony to the end; it will not disappoint! If it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late! See, the rash have no integrity; but the just one who is righteous because of faith shall live; for the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the LORD’s Glory just as the water covers the sea. (Hab 2:1-4, 14)
The question is will we have faith and believe in this Great Spiritual Convergence that is happening in the Springtime of 2024 and act upon it and prepare for it? Or will we be like the government of the time of the Fatima vision, when they kidnapped the children, in unbelief, and later Mother Mary said that "the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima (when they saw the Rainbow covering the people during what they called "an eclipse") --- would have been greater if they had just believed.
Who knows maybe on April 8th, 2024 during God's 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse will bless us with a greater" Miracle of the Sun? I mean, Lucia, did say, "Look at t he sun!" and both popes JPII and Benedict 16th said that the Fatima message was relevant more for our current time, than it was in 1917, and that we would be mistaken if we thought the message was fuliflled.
With this in mind, we consider too how on April 8th, 2024 God is giving His 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse; that this appears to be His speech, His announcement in the sky (as Psalm 19 declares) that goes forth without words, proclaiming His "report" to all nations; that those who pay attention to it are warned -- we can understand our God to be announcing to us that indeed the Wedding Feast of the Lamb of God of His promised New Worldwide Pentecostal outpouring of His Holy Spirit of Truth upon "all flesh", "all mankind" of Acts 2:17-21, the time when He turns His moon to blood and darkens His sun, is near.!
Incidentally Mother Mary declared the Great Miracle of the Sun of Fatima 2 months ahead of time in order that they would be prepared for it, and if they would have understood Scripture, as it related to the message of Fatima, they would have been prepared ahead of time and the Fatima Sun Miracle would have been greater, just as Mother Mary said, because when it came they would have been prepared by confessing their sin with their whole heart and had great faith that just as God has always done when we repent, would do just as He did that day (because their were many who, on that day repented, but many who did not, did not experience the rainbow colors, nor saw the Holy Family, Jesus Mary and Joseph - in the sky), On that day, God blessed His Children with a great outpouring of His Love through His Holy Spirit of Truth in Rainbow colors and the dancing of the sun and the vision of the Holy Family (whom each family is given in order to emulate a Divine Way of Living). But many did not experience this wonderful moment as they could have if they had repented and been prepared to receive the Great Miracle that Mother Mary had let them know 2 months in advance was about to happen.
(Fatima for Today p. 104, Scriptural reference for knowing God's plans ahead of time: Amos 3:7 1 Chron 12:33, Mk 4:34, Mt 13:10-12, 16-17, Jer 33:3, Dan 2:22, Dan 11:33, Rev 3:3, 1 Thess 5:4-6, Jn 16:13)
Many of the people at the time, during the Great Sun Miracle of Fatima, when they saw the colors of God's Rainbow covering people, during what they described an "eclipse of the sun" did repent out loud of their sins with great sorrow and because they did, they received great healing of their bodies as well as their souls; God gave an outward sign of this because before the Great Sun Miracle their clothes were soaking wet with mud and rain - they were "soaking dirty", but after the Sun Miracle (when they saw God's Covenant Rainbow Sign of Gen 9:13, Ez 1:27-28, Rev 4:1-2) their clothes were as the witnessed declared, "clean and dry as if just coming from the laundry!" We can understand this to mean that God was giving an outward sign of the cleansing of their clothes, of the inward cleansing of their souls that they had just received. (Ps 51:12-13, Jn 14:16-18, Jn 8;44, 31-32, 1 Jn 3:8)
With this in mind - that we be prepared for God's promised soon to come New Worldwide Pentecost, we can proclaim what the Book of Reveleation reveals, ahead of time to us, and that is --
The Spirit (of Truth) and the Bride say Come Lord Jesus Come!
