The Warning of Garabandal: What it is not

An excerpt from my book, The Secrets of Medjugorje and Garabandal Revealed:

“Be Advised: there are numerous false visionaries and other persons who are promoting false ideas about the Warning!

“The Warning has its limits. It will not reveal all knowledge about religion or about morals. It will not make all non-Catholic Christians realize that Catholicism is the truest form of Christianity. It will not make all non-Christians realize that Christianity is the truest form of religion.

“It will not give the very young the understanding of adults. It will not speak to each person beyond the limits of their own knowledge, understanding, and experiences. It will not provide people with a complete understanding of right and wrong. It will not provide people with a complete understanding of their entire life. It will not show each person their entire life. It will not show each person the good things that they have done in their life. It is restrained by the limits inherent to each person’s mind and heart and life. Each person will not see their soul as God sees it.

“The Warning is not the end of the world. The Warning is not an immediate precursor to the end of the world, nor does it herald the Return of Jesus Christ. The end of the world is not for this generation, nor for the next, nor for the next, nor until centuries afterward. The Antichrist is not in the world today, and he will not be born for several centuries.”

    How do you know that the end of the world will not come soon?
    And how do you know the Antichrist is not here now? I enjoy your articles (sometimes) and I am glad that you
    are faithful to Church teaching. The Cathechism does not speak in such concrete terms as you do about the
    end days.

    The CCC does not contain all of the teachings of Tradition, Scripture, and the Magisterium; it is a summary of many teachings, not all. Most of eschatology is not doctrine, but theological opinion. The CCC is focused mainly on doctrine, and so it does not contain much eschatology.

    I know that the end of the world is not for this generation, and that the Antichrist is not in the world today, on the basis of many years of study of Catholic eschatology. See my article:
    The Antichrist is Not in the World Today
    and my post:
    Is it possible that Jesus will return for this generation?
