The beauty of the Fatima predictions is that unsophisticated and unworldly children were chosen to proffer words, ideas, and concepts which they could have had no familiarity. The methodology lends greater credence and validity to their words. As apocalyptic messaging was delivered through the mouths of innocents speaks to the intents of those who sent the messaging.
A news story was proffered on one of the networks stating that the
third Fatima prediction had been released but there was nothing apocalyptic
in it. The news source did not report the text of the prediction, only
their spin on it.
I've numbered my comments and they appear at the bottom of the text.
After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire but they died out in contact with the splendor that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand. (1)
Pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: Penance, Penance, Penance! And we saw in an immense light that is God: something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it; a Bishop dressed in white; we had the impression that it was the Holy Father; other bishops, priests, religious men and women going up a steep mountain at the top of which there was a big cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; (2)
before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; (3)
having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him and in the same way there died one after another the bishops, priests, religious men and women and various lay people of different ranks and positions. (4)
Beneath the two arms of the cross there were two angels
each with a crystal in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of
the martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their
way to God.(5)
(1). Again, we have the theme of conflict. The Virgin stands against an angel who would serve up destruction from the left hand. Note, that at Angel's Lair the Beast sits at the left hand of Michael. It is axiomatic that Mary would stand with her Son. It follows that the Son AND Mary stand against the left handed angel.
(2). The Church walks a hard uphill road.
(3) the issue of corpses can be taken a variety of ways. It does not necessarily predict war. After rapture those left behind are of the status of the dead. Their ASCENDANCY in ruins.
(4) An equality of judgment is suggested in that all receive the same future (death) regardless of rank or station. First of that number is the pope. We must keep in mind that the children of Fatima were/are Catholics and their mindset would have relevance. This verse also predicts that the "Cross" is the judge and they must journey to it. A reference to the last judgment where the Son judges the remainder of mankind.
(5) The blood of the martyrs are sprinkled upon those who aren't martyrs. It infers a blessing as in being purified or blessed as one might be with holy water.
Critical to an understanding of these things, is the tie into celestial affairs. The left handed angel with the sword draws the line of an Earth/Universe conflict. Mary quenches/ reduces the fire of his sword. Heavenly intervention from Father is indicated. Regardless, there is destruction as the non ascendants travel the road to their ascendancy in a post rapture era.
Can it be considered an irony that the contents of this prophecy are also carved in stone at Angel's Lair? The Lair gives greater definition to the cast of characters and the roles.
