Events in the Philippines of prophetic significance?

In an article entitled "Medjugorje Prophecy on RP soon to be fulfilled?", Mr. Bingo P. Dejaresco writes, "A message from Our Lady of Medjugorge spoke of the Philippines to become the "global spiritual center." Will this become a reality soon? The Philippines, the only Catholic nation in Asia, has a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. " (Source: http://www.TheBoholChronicle.com ).

One has to wonder if recent events in the Philippines (such as the building of a statue of Our Lady which will be taller than the Statue of Liberty) have a prophetic significance. After signing the Japanese surrender, General MacArthur (whose involvement in the Philippines fulfilled a prophecy itself) wanted to speak to America and the world about peace, but with a strong warning. He said: “Men since the beginning of time have sought peace…military alliances, balances of powers, leagues of nations, all in turn failed, leaving the only path to be by way of the crucible of war. The utter destructiveness of war now blots out this alternative. We have had our last chance. If we will not devise some greater and equitable system, our Armageddon will be at our door. The problem basically is theological and involves a spiritual recrudescence, an improvement of human character that will synchronize with our almost matchless advances in science, art, literature and all material and cultural developments of the past two thousand years. It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh.”

Many prophecies appear to be converging. General MacArthur had served as superintendant of West Point from 1919-1922. In January of 1930, he was promoted to full General, 4 stars and named the U.S. Army's Chief of Staff. MacArthur retired from the Army in 1937 and one year later the President of the Phillipines, Manuel Quezon, appointed him Field Marshall of the Phillipine Army. In 1941 MacArthur was recalled to active duty as the U.S. prepared to enter World War II. By 1942 MacArthur was Supreme Allied Commander of the Southwest Pacific theater. MacArthur was a great man and a military genius who understood the strategic importance of the Philippines and, more importantly, the moral obligation of the United States to stand with its ally. For a time, this obligation was not recognized by Washington: http://media.pcog.org/en/Literature/WHLC.pdf

Will we heed General MacArthur's warning? More importantly, will w heed the warnings of Our Lord Jesus and His Blessed Mother who has appeared at so many locations throughout the world?

Interesting. I recommend the book Catholic Prophecy by Yves Dupont.

Our world is on the precipice. One of the signs of the times is that Catholics will hate and persecute other Catholics who speak the ruth and defend Church teachig but will remain silent when it comes to opposing abortion, homosexuality and other evils.

Anonymous, thank you for that. I have read Yves Dupont's book and it is superb.

Andrew, I couldn't agree with you more. It is a sad day when those who are supposed to be our brothers and sisters in the faith hate us for speaking the truth and remain silent on the evils of our day. These are the "Catholics" who have succumbed to the spirit of Antichrist. Many if not most of these will follow the Son of Perdition and make compromise with the world. This because they never really belonged to our fellowship as Scripture says.
