Exposing the Lies of The Book of Truth

by The Seventh Warrior

The Book of Truth (BOT). Maria Divine Mercy (MDM). Crusade of Prayers. Seal of the Living God. These have become familiar and popular for the last few years as end time prophecies already predicted at Fatima, Akita, other major apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary and in Her messages to the priests through Fr. Gobbi have been unfolded and have now come to pass. All those following those messages have been anticipating some series of events that have been predicted from the sources already mentioned, which regard the end of times. When they come across with the messages of the Book of Truth, allegedly written by someone called, “maria divine mercy”, they would, for the most part, immediately conclude that these messages are of Divine Origin, because it sounds so much how the Lord sounds (that before you’d notice the great difference) in His private revelations and the other prophecies pointing to the end times.

"I Really Regret that I Was Part of the Cult. It's One Big Trap." Testimony from Belgium

It all started about two or three years ago. I've always been interested in anything to do with the Second Coming of Christ and the end times. I've always been a God-fearing believer which led me to explore the Internet, looking up prophecies about Jesus' Second Coming. 

Initially, I surfed Youtube looking up videos about the "rapture" and wondered about how it would be and whether it would happen in our lifetime. I stumbled upon a site one day that talked about the end times, which fascinated me. It also had this little online store in which I purchased a wooden Rosary. The admin of that site somehow talked me into checking out the website I had never heard about before, called thewarningsecondcoming.com.

If "Maria Divine Mercy" Was Trader in Futures, She'd Be in Jail. Her Forecasts Have 100% Failure Rate

By David Moorcroft.

If "Maria Divine Mercy" was trader in futures, she'd be in jail. Her forecasts have 100% failure rate. Not only have the prophetic claims of the Sybil of Dublin Town failed every test of discernment, her "prophecies" have a proven expiry date. That date has passed.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich
Extremist traditionalist groups in or on the fringes of the Catholic Church and followers of false or unapproved private revelations are making much of an alleged “prophecy of the Two Popes” in the writings of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. They claim that the “prophecy” concerns the post-Vatican II Church, and especially the relationship between Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict. The text itself clearly proves this to be wholly false. The recorded words of Bl. Anne are not a prophecy, but a vision. The relevant passages are quoted below:

Second Maria Divine Mercy Radio Interview Discovered!

By Mark Saseen

In October 2011, only months after starting her website of ‘Maria Divine Mercy’ messages, Mary Carberry gave a 45 minutes interview with a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S., Catholic radio station. Her convoluted responses would be contradicted by later ‘tellings’ of her story. As she gained popularity, she asked followers, through her Facebook allies, to make no reference to the Philadelphia interview.

It was ultimately her voice, captured from that interview – scientifically matched to the voice of Carberry – that provided conclusive evidence that Mary Carberry and Maria Divine Mercy were the same person.

Pope Francis, the hermeneutic of conspiracy and the ‘Three F’s’

Author: Peter Bannister

How many conspiracy theories about Pope Francis have you heard? It’s likely that you have come across at least one, and if your natural reaction was to dismiss it out of hand, perhaps you’ve missed a trick. The author of a new book on the Pope’s ‘not-so-cultured despisers’ argues that such narratives have a sociological significance and require our attention if we are to understand the phenomenon of Pope Francis. (...)

First type ‘Pope Francis False Prophet’ into an internet video search engine. Sort results by number of views. You may well be surprised to discover the size of the audience for conspiratorial narratives concerning Jorge Mario Bergoglio. (...)

On Saint Francis, Pope Francis, the Two Popes and the False Prophet

By David Moorcroft 
Saint Francis
Since the election of Pope Francis, certain factions on the fringes of the Catholic Church, in particular extreme traditionalists and quasi-sectarian groups gathered around spurious and patently false private revelations have been exploiting the Internet for the propagation of bogus prophecies attributed to Saints and Blesseds of the Church. The claim is made that these “prophecies” have foretold the election of Pope Francis and its dire consequences for the Church.

(1) A bogus prophecy falsely attributed to St Francis of Assisi which foretells the coming of an uncanonically elected “destroyer pope” has been widely circulated.

Internet False Prophet

Interesting article on the Catholic Internet and... Maria Divine Mercy from Father Angelo M. Geiger, a Franciscan Friar of the Immaculate, and a priest for more than twenty years: 

Father Angelo M. Geiger
There are many reasons to know this woman (Maria Divine Mercy) is a fraud, some of them doctrinal, some of them having to do with the money trail, and some of them just common sense: Is MDM the seventh Angel of the Apocalypse? No she is not.
That there is not a single bishop that supports her, but many who condemn the messages one might think would be a clue. But of course, conspiracy theory always has a ready answer. Everything is connected: false prophet pope, evil bishops—you know, private revelation comes first.

Powerful Testimony of Former Follower of Maria Divine Mercy

My spiritual adventure started with a mistake, a really big mistake. I came across Maria Divine Mercy’s messages while searching on Google. At the time I was interested in anything but the faith. Even so, I began reading them. 

Initially, I found the messages interesting because they spoke about the future, the love of God, the Apocalypse - and I was curious how it was all going to work out. Curiosity got the better of me though it would be a long time before I would admit it.

Maria Divine Mercy: A Dangerous Demonic Deception

By Father John Abberton

Fr. John Abberton 
"I am a priest exorcist of 15 years experience. I have permission to share these things.

I now have permission to say these things. Lately I have been trying to help a lady who used to read these false messages. This lady has been possessed by many demons. I cannot say how many. I have had many sessions with her, in the presence of another priest and a lay woman who are witnesses to what I have to say.

This person came to me shortly after she had stopped reading those false messages. The reason she stopped was that she felt "spiritually dead" in spite of saying the prayers recommended by the messages, including the Rosary, and she realised that she was not growing in faith etc. She felt unhappy about this and was strangely ill at ease. As soon as she stopped she was attacked by a demon. She felt its presence and then she realised that she needed help.

Maria Divine Mercy Closes Shop; Walks Away From 'Vision' Business

By Mark Saseen
Official Maria Divine Mercy's Facebook page 
Jesus to Mankind featuring 'laughing Jesus'
closed down on March 27 

Step by step the vision empire known as "Maria Divine Mercy" is crumbling. On March 27, one week after closing her website TheWarningSecondComing, the anonymous seer closed her companion Facebook page that served the visionary's world community.

The closures come less than two months following articles by the Irish Mail on Sunday that offered conclusive evidence identifying Ireland's Mary Carberry as the visionary.

Carberry opened her website of visions in March 2011 working from her home in upscale Malahide, north of Dublin. In four years she accumulated millions of followers and more than 400,000 Facebook "likes." As an anonymous and completely internet-based operation, the 59-year-old former public relations consultant found special favor in the United States, continental Europe, and third world countries such as Nigeria and the Philippines.

Mark Saseen, Author of 'The Outing of Mary Carberry' Discusses Maria Divine Mercy's Collapsing Enterprise

Have you read the latest Maria Divine Mercy's message? Any comments? 

Mark Saseen: On 23 February 2015 Mary Carberry created a 'message from 'Jesus' -- "I will speak with you only periodically and through the Remnant from now on." What does it mean?  Time will tell, but it does indicate that Carberry is losing steam. One website reading this news announced "Ding, dong. The witch is dead."   

Maria Divine Mercy's Message with Commentary. How Silly Can it Get?

By David Moorcroft 

Message titled: Those who exalt themselves before Me but speak evil of others will be cut off from Me.Sunday, January 4th, 2015 @ 16:00

My dearly beloved daughter, if a man who does not believe in Me or My Word, and who is given the gift of discernment [which is not needed for faith or salvation], comes to Me and asks Me for My Help and My Mercy, I will redeem him and give him salvation [you must have missed this before, Mrs Divine Mercy, but we are redeemed already]. If a man who knows Me but betrays Me, then comes to Me and tries to defend his actions, I will cast him away for he has committed the worst sin [not necessarily].

My greatest enemies are those who were blessed with the Truth but whose pride makes them believe that they are privileged to act in My Name [Those who are blessed with the truth KNOW that it is a privilege, not a right, to do anything in God's name. Acknowledging a privilege is no part of the definition of pride.]. I was betrayed by one of My Own when I walked the earth not by those who did not know Me [A truism, therefore an unnecessary saying.
