We can understand that the Fatima 1917 SUN MIRACLE CLEANSING OF HEARTS AND MINDS of 70,000+ souls points us forward to our Triune God coming and "concluding" His New Everlasting Covenant of One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace with His Bride, in the Last Days (Heb 8:8-13); because the visionary, Lucia, commanded on October 13th, 1917 to, "LOOK AT THE SUN!"
Because both St. JPII and Pope Benedict XVI stated that the Fatima message was more relevant for our current time, and that we would be mistaken to think that it had been fulfilled, and Lucia of the Fatima Message on the day of the Fatima Miracle of the Sun declared, "Look at the sun!" we consider that God's 1st Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017 (100th anniversary year of the Fatima Miracle of the Sun) points us to His 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse to come on April 8th, 2024-which will be the feast of the Annunciation ("Annunciation means "Announcement" and it is the day we celebrate the Word becoming Flesh within Mary but also we can understand it to be a day of celebrating the Word becoming flesh within our very own selves - see St. Bernard of Clairvaux' s homily in the Liturgy of the Hours on the first Wednesday of Advent for more understanding of this) as well as other very significant spiritual Convergences (please read my book "Not Like A Thief" for the details). This day of April 8th, 2024, is the very day after the feast of Divine Mercy Sunday as well.
We also consider that God is focusing us on His coming 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse because not only did Lucia cry out, "Look at the sun!", but the 70,000 + witnesses that day in Fatima said that the Miracle of the Sun was "like an eclipse"! We also consider the very significant fact that Pope St. JPII was born and buried on days of solar eclipses. and how these significant fact points us to God's 1st and coming 2nd total solar eclipses of August 21st, 2017 and April 8th, 2024, and how the timing of the 2nd one eludes to God coming and doing as He did for the people who were present that day in Fatima in 1917, who said that when the Miracle of the Sun was happening, they cried out in repentance of their sin, asking God's forgiveness and when they did so the sun returned to it's orbit, instead of crashing down upon them, and when it did so, they found their dirty clothes, "clean and dry as if coming form the laundry" indicating that their souls (hearts and minds) were washed clean.
God's 1st Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017 (100th anniversary year of the Fatima message) was on the feast day of St. Pius X who was nicknamed the Eucharist Pope, as well as He was very devoted to Blessed Mother Mary. He lowered the age for reception of the Eucharist which with God giving mankind His 1st GAE on the feast of St. Pius X, known as the Eucharist Pope, directs our attention to the Eucharist, which directs our attention to what Mother Mary revealed to Fr. Stefano Gobbi, and that is that the Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart will coincide with the Eucharistic Reign of our King Jesus during His Second Coming, in the power of His Holy Spirit of Truth, during God's promised New Worldwide Pentecost.
August 21st, 2017 was the vigil of the Queenship of Mother Mary - very significant indeed, which especially connects what Mother Mary said through the Flame of Love Message of "Placing "the crown" upon the Council" to what God will do on April 8th, 2024.
The "Council" could very well mean the Vatican II Council because this particular council was opened with Pope John XXIII prayer, asking God to pour out His Holy Spirit of Truth upon the Church in a New Way. and in this way we can understand the "crowning of the Council" to mean God fulfilling the request of His pope, by pouring out His Holy Spirit of Truth in a New Way.
The 1st GAE of August 21st, 2017 was "announced" to mankind, by God on the feast day of Dr. of the Church, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, so we can see his feast day of August 20th, 2017, as a precursor to when God gave the eclipse. St. Bernard, as mentioned, whose homily of every 1st Wednesday of Advent (the season announcing the Return of King Jesus), speaks of what we can easily understand as the Illumination of Conscience of Mankind, a time when the fiery Word of Truth of God is found within the heart of mankind, a time when God's Holy Spirit of Truth comes in an invisible, silent way into the heart of mankind, during His Coming.
The Fatima visionaries themselves experienced an illumination of Conscience
Fatima Visionaries experience the Illumination of Conscience
A beautiful Light penetrates the children’s souls who we can understand to be Jesus Himself coming in the power of His Holy Spirit…
A wonderful thing happened, a Light from our Lady (Jesus Himself in the power of His Holy Spirit) enveloped the children and consoled them greatly. As revealed by Sr. Lucia, “Our Lady opened her hands for the first time communicating to us a Light (Jesus) so intense that as it streamed from her hands, It’s rays penetrated our hearts and the innermost depths of our souls; making us see ourselves in God, Who was that Light more clearly than we see ourselves in the best of mirrors; then moved by an interior impulse that was also communicated to us, we fell on our knees repeating in our hearts, “O Most Holy Trinity, I adore You, my God, my God, I love You in the Most Blessed Sacrament” (Fatima for Today p. 48 by Fr. Andrew Apostoli)
St. Faustina, the Apostle of the prophetic Divine Mercy Message, experienced the Illumination of Conscience as well.
"Suddenly I saw the complete condition of my soul as God sees it. I could clearly see all that is displeasing to God. I did not know that even the smallest transgression will have to be accounted for. What a moment! Who can describe it; to stand before the Thrice-Holy God!"(Diary of a Soul by St. Faustina #36)
We can see how Fatima and the Divine Mercy prophetic messages are revealing that the Illumination of Conscience is coming and that it may very well take place near the time of the April 8th, 2024 of God's coming 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse.
We can also consider how directly God's 1st Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017 was followed, just 33 days later, with the pregnant Woman of Revelation 12, who births forth her Child (King Jesus in the power of His Holy Spirit of Truth), was seen in the constellations of the Sky on September 23rd, 2017, the very feast day of St. Padre Pio (great mystical saint of our time who lived each day fully activated in the gifts, charisms and fruits of God the Holy Spirit) which was also the vigil of Our Lady of Walsingham feast day. (which is an apparition message of how to live a holy life just as the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph lived).
The pregnant Woman of Revelation 12 birthing forth her Child in the sky on September 23rd, 2017 was talked about by thousands of people and was of paramount spiritual importance - pointing us forward to God's 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse coming on April 8th, 2024.
Catholic writer, Patrick Archbold, wrote a fantastic article about it titled, "Apocalypse Now? Another Great Sign Arises in the Heavens" which can be googled and read.
I think we can understand this Great Sign (Rev 12:1-2, 10-12, 17) given by God, just 33 days after His 1st Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse, reveals ahead of time to us the coming conclusion of His New Everlasting Covenant of One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace Consummation to His Bride in the Last Days since it was given 33 days after the 1st GAE which points us forward to God's coming 2nd GAE on April 8th, 2024. a day of great spiritual convergence.
As mentioned, God's 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" effect total solar eclipse of April 8th, 2024 is on the day after the feast of Divine Mercy Sunday, which is the feast of the Annunciation (Announcement), is also Nissan 1, and is also the last day of the highest holiest day of Islam, which is Ramadan.
Details are given in my book "Not Like A Thief" which is based on Revelation 3:3 and on 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6 which reveal that indeed those who are in prayerful relationship with God will know the exact day of our King Jesus' Return because we have a Good Father who, just as He did with Noah, will do with His Bride who is paying attention to what He is doing, and will reveal the exact day of the coming flood of Fire (Gen 7:1, 4, 10, 2 Pet 3:5-7) especially through His silent heavenly speech in the sky which announces HIs Divine Appointed Times (Psalm 19, Gen 1:14, Rev 12:1-2, 10-12, 17) which prepares His Children for the coming of the Flood of Fire that He has promised will destroy the "godless" and "deceivers of every sort". (see 2 Pet 3:7, Rev 21:8, Rev 20:10, Rev 3:10)
How do all of these point us to God coming and doing as He has promised and concluding His New Everlasting Covenant of One Flesh (One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace _ see 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, Acts 2:17-21 ) through the events of: the Three Days of Darkness (Ex 10:21-23, Rev 11:5, 11-14), the Illumination of Conscience of all Mankind (1 Cor 15:51-57, Lk 12:2-3, Mt 12:36-37, Wis 18:14-25) , Divine Mercy Sunday (2 Mac 2:7-13, Rev 1:7, Ex 19:9, Deut 4:11-12, Mt 17:5), the Great Miracle of His New Worldwide Pentecost (Acts 2:17-21, Joel 3), which will be confirmed by His Permanent Sign of the Cross of the Son of Man in the sky as promised in Mt 24:29-30, and expounded in, in the Diary of St. Faustina #83-84) , and as revealed to us through the prophetic messages of the Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart and Fr. Stefano Gobbi, as well as the Breeze of the Second Pentecost as revealed to Barnabas Nwoye of Nigeria, by Jesus Himself in 1995 - I believe all of these remind us that just as Psalm 19 reveals to us, that our God continues, as He did with His Bethlehem Star and His 3 hour total solar eclipse at His death on the Cross (Lk 23:44-6) -- all reveal to us, ahead of time, His coming Divine Appointed Times, through His silent, heavenly, wordless Great Signs in the sky, which means it is important that we pay attention to His solar and lunar eclipse, to His comets, to His Stars and thus we pay attention to and discern the events of His 1st and 2nd Great American "Diamond Ring" total solar eclipses and His Great Sign of the pregnant Women of Revelation 12 who births forth her Child in the sky in 2017.
These all are pointing us forward to the coming Divine Appointed Time of God when he comes to conclude His New Everlasting Covenant of One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace with His Bride as Scripture reveals and we can understand that when it happens, it will happen in alignment with His already established Feast Days because He Himself declares to us that He comes not to abolish the old, but to fulfill it. (Mt 5:17, Heb 8:8-13, Rev 12:1-2, 10-12, 17, Mk 16:20, Jer 23:29, Jer 5:14, Acts 2:17-21, 1 Cor 14:5-6, 24-25, Zech 8:23, Rev 11:5, 12:1-2, 10-12, 17, Rev 20:10, 2 Pet 3:7, Rev 21:8, Mk 16:20)
This and much more amazing spiritual convergences appear to be coming on April 8th, 2024 and afterwards -- which makes one consider very seriously that the New Springtime which our popes have prayed for just might happen in the coming Springtime of 2024 - and on the very feat day of Pentecost, when God sends His comet Wirtanen (whihc in Finnish means "Rivers" which leads us to Jn 7:37-39, Rev 21:2, 5-6, Rev 22:1-5, Ez 47:1-12, Ps 1, Is 11:1-4, 61:1-4, Rev 21:1-8) .
For deeper understanding of this, I invite you to read my blog titled, "The Illumination of Conscience of Mankind" as well as my books (which are Scripture studies) in which I detail all of what is going to happen on April 8th, 2024, and in this way a Biblical understanding unfolds to all of what our King Jesus and Queen Mother Mary have revealed, revelation upon revelation, over the years, and it all points to the fulfillment of God coming and pouring out His Holy Spirit of Truth upon all mankind, in order to consummate - conclude - His New Everlasting Covenant of One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace with His Bride, during the Wedding Feast of the Lamb of God, in the last days, in order to manifest God's promised restoration of Earth to Heaven as promised in Revelation 21:1-8, by restoring mankind in the Image and Likeness of His Holy Spirit of Truth. (Heb 8:8-13, Ez 37:9-10, Rev 19:12-25, Mt 4:4, Rev 3:20-23, Rev 3:10, Rev 21:1-8).
Mother Mary's title given at Fatima was, "Our Lady of the Rosary". She encouraged us to have devotion to Jesus' Sacred Heart through Her Immaculate Heart, by praying and meditating upon the Mysteries of the Rosary of His Birth, Life, Passion, Death, Resurrection, Ascension, and continuous Coming to us in the power of His Holy Spirit of Truth (Pentecost every moment of every day :) ), and in this way, we understand how we will be like her, the greatest saint in Heaven, in that we too shall become One Heart and Mind of Truth and Peace with King Jesus, crowned with righteousness as she is crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth. (remember the 1zst GAE of God was given on the vigil of the Queenship feast of Mother Mary and I believe we can understand this to mean a foreshadowing of God's coming and consummating Earth to Heaven by crowning His Church, His Bride with the crown of righteousness, just as God has crowned Mother Mary with the crown of righteousness.)
The Crown of Righteousness
From now on the Crown of Righteousness awaits me, which the Lord, the Just Judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me, but to all who have longed for His appearance. (2 Tim 4:8)
The Lord Himself, with a (fiery) Word of command, with the Voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God, will come down from Heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first,
Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught - up together with them in the Clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Thus, we shall always be with the Lord. (1 Thess 4:16-17) (remember being "caught up in the clouds" means hearing God's voice clearly upon the "airwaves" - see: Deut 4:11-12, Ex 19:9, Ex 13:21-23, Acts 1:8-11, 2 Mac 1:8, Rev 1:7, Mt 17:5, Rev 3:20-23)
After this I had a vision of an open door to Heaven, and I heard the trumpet-like Voice that had spoken to me before, saying, “Come up here and I will show you what must happen afterwards." At once I was caught -up in (the Holy) Spirit (of God's Truth). (Rev 4:1-2)
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will conclude a New Covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers
the day I took them by the hand to lead them forth from the land of Egypt; for they did not stand by My covenant and I ignored them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant I will establish with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws (of Truth) in their minds and I will write them upon their hearts. I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And they shall not teach, each one his fellow citizen and kinsman, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ (know King Jesus Who is Truth coming in the power of His Holy Spirit): for I will forgive their evildoing and remember their sins no more.” When God speaks of a “New” Covenant, He declares the first one obsolete. And what has become obsolete and has grown old is close to disappearing. (Heb 8:8-13) (Also see: Deut 30:6, Jer 31:31-35, Ez 36:25-28, Jer 32:38-41, Ez 37:26-28, Eph 5:25-27, 31-32, Is 43:18-21, Jn 7:37-39, Rev 21:2, 5-6, Rev 22:1-5, Ez 47:1-2, Psalm 1, Is 11:1-4, 61:1-4, Rev 21:1-8, Rev 20:10)
