'The Book of Truth' and 'The Warning Second Coming'. Analysis

By Annalisa Colzi, Italy

The action of the devil, as you know,  is very subtle. The perfect deceiver
knows how to mislead the souls of those of good will. And that’s what is happening with certain messages that are being spread around on the internet.

The messages of dubious origin in question were published on the blog “Messages from Jesus Christ”, the recipient of those messages calls herself Maria of Divine Mercy:
“It was November 9, 2010 when I  suddenly woke up at three in the morning and after seeing the face of Jesus moving from a photo,

Maria Divine Mercy and Vatican II

By T. Brown
There can be little doubt that the supposed messages of "Maria Divine Mercy" are not of divine origin. There are far too many mistakes in them, and internal contradictions as well. One is really left wondering if they were composed by even the demons as we might expect the demons to show more intelligence than this. 

Turn for example, to the message of Monday May 7, 2012: 
"When Vatican II declared new rules they were introduced by those evil Masonic forces from within your corridors. They cunningly presented new ways to administer My Holy Eucharist which are insulting to Me."

Can the devil see the future?

By Father Martin Cross

Yes the Devil can see the future  - in obscurity. 

The Devil is a spiritual intelligent being. Genesis 3:1 tells us that he spoke the first time to Eve, pretending good for the first family on earth while meaning evil, because he is evil. 

"You will not die" he said, "God knows that the day you eat it you will be like him...knowing good and evil"

The Devil spoke to Eve but to achieve the evil intended he had to pretend to be good, and so presented God as wicked. Some modern manifestations present God as eternally angry, as if God is got nothing else but anger for us, his creatures, and is bent on destroying them. But what about the one supreme sacrifice that takes away sins, entrusted to the Church by Christ? (Heb 10:14-18)

Was the devil aware of the consequences of the fall which was to befall not just Adam and Eve, but the whole of humanity if they disobey God

Yes he was, he was an Angel of light, Lucifer, full of knowledge and insight. 

Did he really mean they were not going to die?  No, he knew they would die, and he knew they would lose the favour of God. If he had told Eve he was the Devil, Eve would not have listened to him. If he had told Eve he was a deceiver, his mission would have failed.

The Church, therefore, always guides her children from falling prey to the same and one primordial enemy of mankind, the Devil, and from the apostolic era till the present she has not failed on this task. 

Let us read 2 Cor 11:3- 5 
"And this is my fear; the serpent that seduced Eve with cunning could also corrupt your minds and divert you from the Christian sincerity ....someone now comes and preaches another Christ different from the one we preach or you are offered a different spirit from the one you have received with a different Gospel from the one you have accepted and you agree..." 

This same fear is our concern about all the end-time gospels and prayers going round the globe. People should spend their time going about doing good (Act 10:38) after the example of Jesus, rather than waste their energy avoiding evil and waiting for the world to end.

Reading St. Paul in the above text, we are aware that there are fake Gospels, fake Christs, fake prophesies, which appear to be wonderful and full of hope but in reality they are fake and evil and like in the case of Eve, they aim to destroy all those adhere to these things rather than the real Gospel. 

Yes, the Devil can see the future, and he can reveal it in obscurity. 

But Paul wants us to stand by with the Church who has the deposit of faith as true and holy.

Huge falsehoods in the Open Letter of Fr. Elsinger

Huge falsehoods in the open letter of Fr. F. Elsinger who supports the messages of the 'WarningSecondComing' 

Father Szilveszter OFM, Hungary
The letter adressed to Dr. Mark Miravalle, professor of theology, by Fr. F. Elsinger is clearly a witness that neither its writer (who is maybe unfortunately a priest?), nor its distributors, know the Bible nor the teaching of the Catholic Church. If they knew, they probably wouldn't have written it, and they wouldn't spread this letter whose intention is to mislead sincere people.

The retorical question of Mr. Elsinger: "What kind of evil spirit would ask you to pray the most Holy Rosary daily?”

Dear Mr. Elsinger and Dear MDM followers, 
The kind of evil spirit which drives the water to the mill by itself. While it tries to build a community for itself and divide the Church in the meantime, does it matter what people do or pray? 

Mr. Elsinger: "... as well as the loyalty to the traditional teaching of the Catholic Church”

Stating such thing is extreme, shall I say absurd! Even the little children in catechism class would know what the writer and the distributors of this letter fail to acknowledge. "The traditional teaching of the Catholic Church” says that the head of the Church on earth, who was given the keys to the Kingdom of God, is the officially elected pope, who is now Pope Francis - and who is denied by the followers of MDM as the false prophet. 

Mr. Elsinger: "I’ve got another question, if I may... Jesus established his Church with Peter as his prime governor on Earth with at least two other apostles  with James and John...”

Here’s another severe blunder! Did the Lord Jesus, really establish his Church with only three apostles and not with 12 apostoles, which is also stated in the Bible?

Mr. Elsinger: "How Jesus dared act independently from the Church hierarchy and convert Saul unexpectedly according to his Will? And not only He converted him, but taught him the Gospel and ordained him as an apostle independently from Peter? How could this happen, if Jesus is always and forever forced to stay between the limits of the hierarchy of His Own Church?"

Did the Lord Jesus really act independently from hierarchy when He converted Saul and appointed him as his Apostle and ordered to preach the Gospel? 

Dear writer and MDM followers, if I only grab a half sentence from the Bible, I can prove from the Bible that there is  "no God".
 "There is no God!" – states the first verse of Psalm 14. But if I put the first half of the sentence to the right place, the whole text sounds quite different: "The fool has said in his heart: "There is not God!”

Mr. Elsinger has done the same thing too, he only talks about part of the Truth. It is true, indeed, that on the way to Damascus there isn't any actual representative of the hierarchical Church at the event that starts Saul on his way to conversion and becoming an apostle  but how could there be, when he was up to eliminate the followers of Christ and wanted to imprison them?

After what happened on the way to Damascus, Jesus himself, who appeared on the way, sent the blinded Saul to the representative of the Church in Damascus, and sent Ananias to him as well, who would give him his sight back and accept him in the official Church by baptising him.
Let’s see what the Bible says. In the Acts of the Apostles we can read:
"As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.  He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? ”Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” (Acts 9: 3-6)
”In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!” “Yes, Lord,” he answered.  The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.” “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem. And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name.” But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, and after taking some food, he regained his strength.” (Acts 9: 10-19)

Later we can read:
 "When he came to Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, not believing that he really was a disciple. But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. He told them how Saul on his journey had seen the Lord and that the Lord had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had preached fearlessly in the name of Jesus.  So Saul stayed with them and moved about freely in Jerusalem, speaking boldly in the name of the Lord.” (Acts 9: 26-28)

These parts of the Scripture don’t suggest to me in any way that the Lord Jesus led Saul to the whole Truth apart from the actual Church and hierarchy and thus made him an apostle.

How did Paul apostle think and how did he approach the actual Church and its leaders? When a problem arose with the teaching, what did he do? Did he try to solve it by himself?

No, he didn't. He went to Jerusalem to the apostles and elders to receive details. Even though he probably had a good relationship with the Lord Jesus, he went for advice to the leaders of the Church established by Him and submitted to their decision.

"Certain people came down from Judea to Antioch and were teaching the believers: “Unless you are circumcised, according to the custom taught by Moses, you cannot be saved.” This brought Paul and Barnabas into sharp dispute and debate with them. So Paul and Barnabas were appointed, along with some other believers, to go up to Jerusalem to see the apostles and elders about this question. The church sent them on their way, and as they traveled through Phoenicia and Samaria, they told how the Gentiles had been converted. This news made all the believers very glad. When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and elders, to whom they reported everything God had done through them. Then some of the believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees stood up and said, “The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to keep the law of Moses.” The apostles and elders met to consider this question.”(Acts 15: 1-6)

And after the debate, the hierarchical Church, under the reign of Peter, made a decision: 
Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They sent Judas called Barsab'bas, and Silas, leading men among the brethren, with the following letter: "The brethren, both the apostles and the elders, to the brethren who are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cili'cia, greeting. Since we have heard that some persons from us have troubled you with words, unsettling your minds, although we gave them no instructions, it has seemed good to us, having come to one accord, to choose men and send them to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, men who have risked their lives for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We have therefore sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will tell you the same things by word of mouth.” (Acts 15: 22-27)

St Peter and St. Paul
Mr Elsinger asks:  "How Jesus dared act independently from the Church hierarchy and convert Saul unexpectedly according to His Will? And not only He converted him, but taught him the Gospel and ordained him as an apostle independently from Peter?"

The answer of apostole Paul can be read in the letter to Galatians: 
"Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. I went up by revelation; and I laid before them (but privately before those who were of repute) the gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, lest somehow I should be running or had run in vain. But even Titus, who was with me, was not compelled to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. But because of false brethren secretly brought in, who slipped in to spy out our freedom which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage-- to them we did not yield submission even for a moment, that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. And from those who were reputed to be something (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality) --those, I say, who were of repute added nothing to me; but on the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised (for he who worked through Peter for the mission to the circumcised worked through me also for the Gentiles), and when they perceived the grace that was given to me, James and Cephas and John, who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised;” (Gal 2: 1-9)

Mr. Eisnger finished his letter this way: "I accept these messages literally, declaring my full loyalty to the traditional teaching of the Catholic Church, especially as Bl Pope John Paul II preached it in our days.”

As I previously mentioned, stating this is extreme, and absurd.

The traditional teaching of Blessed Pope John Paul  was published around 20 years ago in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which these messages completely contradict. 

It is this or that. I either accept the teaching of the Church and I am the member of the Catholic Church, or I accept the messages of this 'great warning' and thus disinherit myself from the Church. The latter indicates naturally that I can’t take sacraments, I can’t go to confession and I can’t receive communion. I cannot accept both. Even the little children in religion class know what the writer and distributors of these messages fail to acknowledge. Accepting the officially elected Pope belongs to " the traditional teaching of the Catholic Church", and now Francis is the Pope - who is denied and refused by these MDM followers who think he is a false prophet. 

In conclusion, it is rewarding to read the Bible and the Cathecism and study
them seriously. Those willing to do this, will realize that MDM messages are the ”golden tabernacles” in the message of 30th of April, 2013.  If we poke them a little, we find that "not all that glitters is gold" that behind the golden colour we find wood, stone, brick or metal. Even the messages that bring you to pray more, confess, receive the Holy Eucharist, attend the Holy Mass have heresy and falsehood behind them.

Dr. Mark Miraville, a famous Mariologist and professor of theology in the Franciscan University of Steubenville said: 
It is realistic, in my opinion, during our contemporary experience of challenge and change presently being experienced in the Church and in the world, to expect even more false messages in the times to come—false messages intermixed with true content--which serve the diabolical goal to distract us from authentic Church authority and doctrine, and from Heaven’s authentic message for our age.
This can only be countered and remedied by a renewed commitment of obedience to our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and to all legitimate Church authority. Let us jointly and fervently pray for our beloved Holy Father, Pope Francis; for our holy Catholic Church; for the Triumph of Divine Mercy and the Immaculate Heart of Mary as found in authentic contemporary messages of Jesus and Mary; and for the peaceful conversion and reconciliation of the alleged seer and all her present supporters into the heart, obedience, and unity of the Church.”

Papal Watch: So what is wrong with Pope Francis? Part 1

Below are the words of the discredited 
doomsayer Maria Divide Mercy 
regarding the Pope who followed 
Pope Benedict XVI.  
Now who else could he be?:

3/13/13 "My beloved Pope Benedict XVI was persecuted

and fled, as foretold.I have not appointed this person,

who claims to come in My Name,"

3/14/13 "...the imposter (sic), who sits on the throne
in My Church on earth, does not come from Me... 
The time for the schism to be laid bare is close,and 
already, a terrible unease is being felt in Rome,"

3/15/13, "You must pray for all those who run
the Catholic Church. Please includethe man who sits in
the Chair of Peter... Pray that he will accept the 
Truth of the death of my Son on the Cross. 
So infested are they, those who roam the corridors of
Rome, that the biggest sign will be seen in the chaos, 
which will ensue, as they adhere to the command 
of the imposter,(sic)"
Papal watch from the evil eyes of MDM: Part 1

Have the followers of Maria Divine Mercy any reason, besides what they've been told by the false prophet, to doubt that Pope Francis is a true Pope?

Since the canonical papal election of March, 2013, those witless horde of MDM followers with the nerve calling themselves Catholics while rejecting the newly elected Pope Francis have been on a spying mission to find fault, signs

Reply to Dr. Kelly Bowring

This is Tee Brown's reply to Dr. Kelly Bowring's comments on Great Battle Has Begun blog post Tee, for some reasons - technical or otherwise, was not able to comment under the article.
Dr. Kelly Bowring

Dr. Bowring is wrong on a number of points. 

His reliance on a supposed quote of Pope Urban VIII (It is better to believe than not to believe. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you believed it to be true.) is laughable as no one has ever found an actual source of this quote though it is often cited by those trying to spread bogus private revelations. And in any case, it does not matter as we are now under the 1983 Code of Canon Law which requires prior censorship as Cardinal Ratzinger made clear long ago:
"A reminder, therefore, that for the diffusion of texts of presumed private revelations, the norm of the Code in force, Canon 823, para 1, which gives

Lesson 3: An Instruction Set on How to be a false Prophet (Thanks to Maria Divine Mercy)

This is a unique 10-part course on
Deception 101  for those seriouslyconsidering 
launching a lucrativebusiness in false prophecy

Lesson 1: The Principles of Deception
Lesson 2: Basic Marketing: Know your market
Lesson 3: Establish Anonymity
Lesson 4: The Hell with Church Authorities
Lesson 5: Say what your audience wants to hear

LESSON 3: Be anonymous

Using your true identity is a strategic error of many false seers in the past. Now, after amassing a huge fortune from their nefarious doomsaying business, their true names make them easy targets by media who stick their noses in their private affairs or expose their scandalously acquired wealth.  Just check what the media is doing to the poor Christina Gallagher with her seven mansions in Mayo County, that started with a €4 million mansion on a private estate in posh Malahide, all paid for by donations from her followers.  You want to be as rich as her, which this false prophecy scam can give you.  But you don't want to suffer the same public relations misery.

Why complicate your private life? When you’re starting a doomsaying scam business, be sure to separate your scam business from your personal dimension. Living a double life or split personality gives you more flexibility that will not be possible if your real name is known for spreading BS. You don’t have to reveal your true identity and this can help relieve you of any or all of the following worries: 

(1) being hounded by local church authorities demanding to have you investigated for your messages or apparitions; 
(2) being hounded by tax authorities when you profit scandalously from your messages; (3) being harassed or hounded by media for interviews when you become famous; 
(4) getting personally ridiculed and insulted by unbelievers who will see through the fakery of your messages; 
(5)you will make your detractors busy trying to figure out who you really are; and 
(6) you can’t be sued for libel or slander because you’re anonymous, but under the law, by simple implication, you can sue for libel against your critics.

Bear in mind that as a fake prophet, you do not enjoy the divine protection God provides His prophets unless you seek the protection of Satan which can readily be obtained by selling your soul to him. In addition, being anonymous can also allow you to register your name as a corporation in the local SEC as a non-stock non-profit organization. 

What used to be a one-of-kind
Divine Mercy image specified by
no less than Jesus Christ
in His message to St. Faustina
has been effectively bastardized
by Maria Divine Merce
The bible does make an implicit reference to anonymous prophets when it referred to them in several verses as "false prophets."  That's the scam business you are in. While well-informed Catholics will immediately recognize you to be false, as there is no such thing as a prophet from God who hides behind anonymity, you can always justify it by saying that it was Christ or Mary who had advised you to be anonymous because heaven does not want its prophet to be harmed in spreading their messages. That’s quite convenient, actually, and you should take advantage of that. It makes you wonder why previous discredited seers didn't think of it and suffered the ridicule for the rest of their days.

What’s in a name? Everything

Anonymity does not mean being a no-name brand. In fact, you should brand yourself. That’s one of the pillars of marketing. Just remember, if you can market garbage successfully, you become an expert marketer. So use the best arsenal in marketing – branding. You can simply use a name that is quite familiar to most Catholics, even the ignoramuses among them, and has significant following. That quality can rub off to you. Some of the more successful names used by false seers are “Holy Love,” and “Two Hearts” Sometimes their names precede the true name of the false seer. This is another reason why you don’t need to reveal your true identity.

Learn from the master false prophet: Maria Divine Mercy

The Divine Mercy devotion is now one of the most popular Catholic practices after the Holy Rosary.  Look at the name Maria Divine Mercy. It is the perfect study on how to bastardize a popular Catholic devotion - the Divine Mercy of St. Faustina.  In fact, her devotion name is more popular than the saint who introduced it.  How many do you think know or even associate Divine Mercy devotion with St. Faustina? Very few.   By associating your false prophecy to a famous name, you could even steal the reputation. Look how many ignoramuses now associate the Divine Mercy chaplet to Maria Divine Mercy, not to St. Faustina.  That’s the way to make an easy name for yourself. Steal it.  Every identity thief out there knows this. So learn from them, too.  

Anonymity serves MDM well 

Maria Divine Mercy now has a strong presence in Slovakia, prompting the Slovakian Bishop Conference to issue a notice of condemnation to her messages. The Archbishops of Melbourne and Brisbane, as well as the Auxiliary Bishop of the diocese of Salzburg in Austria, have all issued warnings to Catholics about the "fraudulent" and "corrosive" nature of the messages. This is clearly even worse than any church findings of a non-constat origination of any private revelation or apparition messages.

In the meantime, what has the local bishop of Dublin, presumably the residence of Maria Divine Mercy doing all this time? Nothing. For the last three years, the Dublin diocese has remained silent. This is where the anonymity of Maria Divine Mercy has proven advantageous to her scam business. There is absolutely no way for the local Dublin diocese to investigate and verify the supernatural origins of her alleged private revelation since the prophet does not want to be known. And because what matters to the Holy See is the findings of the local ordinary in matters of apparitions and private revelations, in its absence, it will take some time for Vatican to even bother with these messages. In short, by her Anonymity.  (Nevertheless, it is interesting to note that the Dublin diocese could have issued a pastoral opinion to protect its flock the way the other bishops have done.  This tells you that not all dioceses are the same.  Some are less concerned than others and it may be a good idea to make some research on where you can put your scam business headquarters that can enjoy the least interference from the local church authorities. Dublin may be a good option.  Ireland seems to have many competent false prophets like Christina Gallager and John Leary) 
Maria Divine Mercy effectively guarantees that her scam business would be around for a very long time, despite the fact that her Warning Second Coming has foretold the end of the world within this lifetime, or for that matter, buying up several domain names for her site that would last for another 10 years at the least. Good thing your target market in such fake messages is clueless about using a Whois online tool to check on your domain name. Only devout Catholics concerned about the spread of your messages would bother investigating these things.
Protecting your Brand

This is already outside of the topic as it involves having practical working knowledge on the security procedures for protecting your anonymity and branding.  Such knowledge will go a long way to ensure that any step you take in developing and marketing your branded messages cannot be traced back to your real identity.  For instance, when registering your domain name for your website, never use your real identity, contact phone, email and home address.  By all means, use a proxy to front your identity, This can be a dummy corporation or another pseudonym.  When you have a support team that helps you with marketing and distributing the messages, you have to recruit only the most trusted persons.  Make sure they also hide behind anonymity or pseudonyms.  For a more thorough learning about security to your anonymity, you may have to get the services of professional IT security expert.

Lesson 2: An instruction set on how to be a false prophet (Thanks to Maria Divine Mercy)

This is a unique 10-part course on
Deception 101  for those seriously
considering launching a lucrative
business in false prophecy

Lesson 1: The Principles of Deception
Lesson 2: Basic Marketing: Know your market
Lesson 3: Be Anonymous
Lesson 4: Forget about church authorities
Lesson 5: Say what your audience wants to hear
LESSON 2:  Basic Marketing: Know your target market (intended victims)

As a lesson in marketing, after defining your scam business as a doomsayer, this first lesson answers your question: What is my market size? Why people can readily fall into my hands of a false prophet and make me rich while creating confusion and dissension in the Catholic Church?
  • Majority of Catholic faithful, more than 95% of them, do not bother to read or understand the Catholic catechism in any of its versions. They know their hated Algebra better. Knowing their catechism is not required for anyone to have a degree or be financially successful. This ignorance makes them ready fodder for false prophets to introduce new ideas and concepts they think are Catholic but are doctrinally wrong.
  • Catholics rarely bother to read scriptures. The Catholic Church maintains that faith does not rest on Scriptures alone, but also on Sacred traditions of the Church and the pronouncements of the Magisterium.  There is more chance that Protestants read the Bible more because that is their sole source of Faith.   Again, this makes them vulnerable to new ideas and concepts that are scripturally irrelevant.
  • People love to hear gossips, innuendos and sensational news. Anything that ruins reputations and bashes authority with rebellious angst is welcome reading material, especially among the young.
  • Religious education, if the faithful undergo one at all, does not involve how to recognize evil.  Their ability to discern is poor or does not exist. Ask them about the six deadly sins against the Holy Spirit and they will show more knowledge about the six top features of the iPhone. Ask them how the devil looks like and they will say it looks Dracula or Voldemort. 
  • People, especially the young, tend to be rebellious, to want to be different or stand out from the crowd. They rebel from their parents, engage in illegal pot sessions and small time crimes and misdemeanors, and enjoy disobeying their teachers and anyone in authority. Obedience is an alien word for them.  Hence, it is very easy for your target audience to follow you, rather than obey their Church authorities.
  • Catholics find their religion boring, and prefer to snore while attending mass. Thanks to parish priests who make boring sermons and have no charisma whatsoever. This ennui makes them easily attracted to anything that would excite their imagination or appeal to their fantasies.  Conspiracy stories and sensationalist agenda in your false prophecies make for quick and easy bait for this audience..
  • Media has capitalized on the crimes of priests such as rape and pedophilia and the Catholic hierarchy has lost credibility to many of its flock for glossing over their crimes and hushing up victims with out of court settlements.  You can likewise capitalize on this because ignorant Catholics will never be able to separate the indefectibility of the Church militant from the fallible human dimensions of the clergy. 
Typical market psychographics you can tap
for your online doomsaying business scam.
This is most likely the front picture of the
Call of Duty poster for the crusade prayer group
invitation issued by Maria Divine Mercy
  • So many Catholics are already in the state of mortal sin, thanks to their penchant for pornography on the internet, adultery from extra-marital sex, active homosexual life and aberrant relationships, use of artificial birth control and abortificents, covetousness for the lifestyle successes of their neighbors, idolizing Justin Beiber, not to mention that many have divorced their spouses and re-married or have aborted their babies in the past.  And they hardly ever go to confession.  Worst, they think by taking Holy Communion  they are pious Catholics, never knowing that they actually pile up otheir mortal sins.  Again easy fodder for your deception.
  • There are many disillusioned priests who are open to new concepts as well as former priests with grudges against the church for being de-frocked. Even some traditionalist, orthodox and sedevacantist priests might readily find your messages attractive, provided you attack Vatican II, another sensational item, though this has been done to death by previous false prophets.  But no harm recycling them.
  • People are always seeking to find proof about life after death, proof about God, the spirit world and anything magical.  Hence, mystics and seers throughout the ages have always attracted throngs of believers, regardless of any Church clearance.  
  • People love fantasies. You only need to see the global successes of the Harry Potter, Twillight Saga,  Star Wars and Lord of the Rings movie franchises to see how receptive people are to such nonsense. And not even these, you only need to see the throngs of followers of discredited seers over the years to see a huge following ready to be milked if you know how.  So if you make your false messages fantastic, absurd, weird, and totally outside or rational thought, you can be sure you will have a wide following.  Remember, there's always one born every minute.  Never lose track of that. 
This is your target audience, an easy prey with one foot already in hell. Once you know your target victims, you can easily craft devious messages either as Mary, Christ or God the Father and through them, take advantage of their catechismal, canonical, doctrinal and scriptural ignorance. You can even send out messages as the Holy Spirit.  Only few Catholics know that the Holy Spirit does not speak.

It shouldn't be difficult. The gullibility of ignoramuses knows no bound, especially those seeking some excitement or outlet in their boring lives and never finding any interest in reading their catechism which to most Catholics is boring stuff.  They would rather spend their time reading Tom Clancy or Dan Brown fictions.  If your messages  

Remember, as a false seer, you don’t need to fool all the people all the time.  You only need to fool some people some of the time.  There will be other false seers who can fool other people at another time. You may also want to set up subsidiaries in other cities or countries to spread your filth.

Remember too, that you have a great perfidious role in human history, fulfilling the prophecies foretold in the Bible, that there will be many false prophets during the end times. Your name or pseudo-name will live forever in the annals of heretical infamy and be listed among unapproved or condemned messages in such sites as the Miracle Hunter and be featured in many Catholic sites where your body of work will be analyzed and studied to death by such theologians as Dr. Miravelle, Ron Conte, Jr, and several church authorities like the Slovakian Bishop’s Conference and Bishops from many Cities like Brisbane and Melbourne.  You will be notorious and infamous.

The book is a compilation of her fantastic nonsense about the Great Warning, Chastisement and Miracle in preparation of the Second Coming of a fake Christ as allegedly revealed by the persons of the Holy Trinity.  It has complemented the spread of her online messages for people who don't always have access to or are clueless in using the internet and the PC and would like the entire body of her BS to read without having to wait for her online messages like your daytime soap opera.
Social Media Marketing 
The Warning Second Coming is online marketing par excellence, using social media platform that consists of Facebook groups and pages. Social media sharing sites like YouTube are harnessed to air short videos of her messages, while blog sites, both operated by followers and sympathizers are fully utilized to spread her babble. Its Facebook presence alone as of June 2013 has nearly 20,000 likes (not really much considering there are 1.2 billion Catholics) and creates a loyal following who would distribute her messages from timeline pages of followers, Facebook groups and pages. Most of these have backlinks and references to relevant pages in the Warning Second Coming which ensures high search optimization.  High content relevance is assured with consistently updated discussions about these messages by her minions. You only need to do a Google search to see that her website lands on the first page all the time, along with a support blog site and her Amazon page selling her books. There is also clear evidence of using reputation management to manage negative content and criticisms about the falsehoods in its messages.
Mary Divine Mercy doesn't have to lift a finger, neither does she need a sales force.  Outside of Ireland and Eastern Europe, her Facebook presence has marshaled key active characters around the world, particularly in the Philippines, Germany, Australia and the US to spread her message.  See for yourself in her Facebook pages how many take her drivel hook, line and sinker while defending her despite repeated attacks from concerned Catholics who see through the charade and the schismatic scandal it is fomenting within the Catholic ranks.  
This is how to do a doomsaying scam business. There are very few specimens that can rival her notoriety and success in luring a large following using social media marketing that large consumer companies can only dream about.

You can ask friends and relatives to head franchises of your invented devotions.  Look how the Crusade Prayer Groups of Maria Divine Mercy have given her a global presence.  She now has thousands of zombie like followers of her Crusade Prayers set up to lure more victims outside of her native Ireland.  They have spread like the plague in countries like Australia and Slovakia, now the US. Very soon she will have the same franchising outreach like McDonald’s.  Don't be surprised if Maria Divine Mercy will soon surpass the wealth of her idol (or business partner) Christina Gallagher. 
Her crusade prayer group can now rival the House of Prayer group of another discredited and fellow Irish false prophet Christina Gallagher.  This is the vehicle for an effective geographic market segmentation that easily dovetails to her social media marketing. 
Just like a a global franchising business, setting up crusade prayer groups provide a legitimate cover that can readily appear to be harmless to Catholics. After all, what could be so wrong or even demonic about prayer groups?  Just about every cult has one.  But this is essentially what you need to emulate when embarking on a similar scam doomsaying business.  As will be discussed in subsequent lesson, the art of deception is all about marketing garbage.  It is actually the highest form of marketing.  If you can market garbage, you can market anything on earth. 

Lesson 1: An Instruction Set on How to be a false Prophet (Thanks to Maria Divine Mercy)

Course Introduction:

Going into the doomsaying scam business can be quite lucrative

If you want to embark on a rewarding career as a false prophet of the Catholic religion, you have made a practical demon-inspired choice.  Not only is it very easy to get followers, it can be quite lucrative when you start selling printed and online materials and related paraphernalia to your victims. Just get it sold at Amazon and other online bookstores. Not many have the time to follow your messages every day and will gladly pay a few bucks for a compilation, or even prayer book you made without a nihil obstat or Imprimatur.  You can even get donations from rich patrons.  This can be an ongoing doomsaying business that can last for years until the next false prophet comes along.  By that time, you would have laughed all the way to the bank countless times to ensure you would live in utter luxury in your retirement.  

There are always doomsayers in every generation; many of them are quite successful. and some more successful than others, like Christina Gallagher, with her many mansions in Malahide and elsewhere. An authoritative reference and an excellent specimen on how to be a false prophet can be found at the Warning Second Coming Website of Maria Divine Mercy. But before you do, consider how easy it is if you keep the following instruction in mind:

Lesson 1: Principles of deception

The golden rule of deception is to manage the perception of another person, or group of persons, so that there is not a hint of deception in the content of your message.

Living with one another creates an unwritten social contract or obligation to be truthful so that people largely trust each other in the conduct of daily routine work. In short, being truthful is often assumed, unless otherwise proven. In addition, as Vincent H. Gaddis writes in his “The Art of Honest Deception”, it is a psychological fact that the primary impulse of people is to believe. Doubting comes secondary and may not even come to the fore unless there is reason to doubt.

This unwritten rule and the natural predisposition of people to believe and trust effectively makes people susceptible, or gullible to untruths, illusions and downright lies.


Telling a lie to someone or an audience face-to-face is generally difficult because liars can betray their deception through nonverbal cues or body language that some people may easily spot. When lies are made in person, the receiver of the lies can sense a mixed signal that may readily point to an attempt at deception. For instance, you can suspect one when you talk to salesman who claims something too good about a product he is selling but could not maintain eye contact or looks elsewhere.

According to the Interpersonal Deception Theory (IDT) developed and espoused in the late 90s by David B. Buller and Judee K. Burgoon, deliberate or intentional deception requires significant cognitive resources in order to contrive a deceptive message that distorts the truth. In contrast, a truthful message enjoys the element of spontaneity that leaves the message sender free from any real-time contrivance to distort the truth. 

This is why deception using the written word is so much more convenient. There are no non-verbal cues that can betray a lie. Deception is thus, best achieved in written format.  Non-fiction articles are often deceptive for altering facts to suit the author's agenda. And one widely used documentation open to deceptive manipulation are private revelations that have been written down by some alleged seer or prophet.  Unless these writings are verified by the competent Church authority, private revelations are generally not taken seriously by the Catholic church.

Variants and forms of deception

A wolf in sheep's clothing represents 
deception that has an implication 
going beyond the deceptive act itself 
into something that puts the receiver 
of the deception into harm's way,
 or even physical or spiritual death.
Disguising a lie with half truths

A variant of lying is presenting half truths. It may not be an outright lie but because its presentation leaves out other things essential to a total appreciation of the true picture but whose absence serves to support an agenda. The result is that people may be persuaded to do things they would not do if they knew everything.

Obscuring a lie with known truths

Another variant of an outright deliberate lie is to sugarcoat or obscure a lie with a preponderance of known truths. If people can be accustomed to recognizing common truths in your message, putting a lie or two becomes readily associated with the truth to make it acceptable which would not be possible if presented on its own. The economy of this form of lying is such that you only need to work on your lies. It costs nothing to mix the lies with truths since those truths do not come from any effort on your part any way.

The 80/20 rule, also known as the Pareto Principle or the law of the vital few in causative relationships states that roughly 80% of the results you want to achieve can come from just 20% of the causes or effort you spend. It applies to deceptive communication, so that your message containing just 20% lies or even less, can result in 80% or more of what you want to achieve. Allegorically, it is akin to saying that it only takes a drop of poison to make a wholesome milk fatal. The reality is such that what matters to deceivers is just the 20% getting across to the message receiver. The rest or the 80% act as "decoration" put in as a bait or trap.

AnonymityThis is the most pervasive form of concealment in the internet age. It is the easiest, cheapest and most effective method of protecting the true identity of the deceiver. When you're out to make mischief, it makes no sense to throw your name around.  Most bloggers and forum members and as posters in comment sections hide behind anonymity.  After all, in many cases, it's the content of the message that matters, not do made it.    Pseudonyms or false names and aliases can substitute for outright anonymity.  Apart from distinguishing an anonymous deceiver from the rest of the pack, you can use a name to brand your online and offline presence. Once your false name accumulated brand recognition or what in marketing is referred to as brand equity, your notoriety stays with the brand and your true identity remains unsullied, untouched and Scot-free.   It is important that among the first steps you need to do when marketing your deception is to protect your identity which will be discussed in Lesson 3.

Collaborative or cooperative deception

Another form of deception is to get as many people on your side to lie with you or support your lie. It can be difficult to demystify a lie if there are many people with different perspectives who can defend a lie from those perspectives.  That is why deception can be easily achieved with private revelations. If you have the right message that can ignite a loyal following, followers will defend your messages.  You only need to follow the histories of previous prophecies that have been condemned or are still awaiting church approval that may never come in our lifetime.  Each of these, like Garanbandal, Holy Love, Fr. Gobbi, Vasula Ryden, Two Hears, Two Patricks, among others have hundreds of thousands of devoted followers ready to defend the messages without question.  Even the Little Pebble continues to maintain a following despite its leader William Kamm getting convicted in 2005 for raping a 15-year old. Such is the power of private revelations.


This is a form of deceptive communication that can also be collaborative since there is common agenda (earn money through fraud, or win an election through promises) and purposive lying shared by many who stand to gain by it. Propaganda is meant to influence a certain attitude, direction or action towards achieving an agenda, concealed or otherwise. Generally used in politics, governance and the military, a propaganda such as those exemplified by Goebbels during Hitler’s Third Reich is often a mix of part truth and part falsehoods.

In contrast to an impartial or dispassionate presentation of facts that aims to achieve a rational action or decision, propaganda panders to prejudices in a subjective effort to elicit an emotional response. The desired result is often a change of attitude towards a particular target or subject to further a political, ideological, religious or commercial agenda. Propaganda can be used as a form of ideological or commercial warfare.

False prophecy: The ultimate deception

Private revelations have about the same attraction as a fiction novel from Dan Brown, John Le Carrer or Tom Clancy.  And because it has the potential to disrupt religious routines and lead to questions that foment doubt and iconoclastic irreverance to doctrines, private revelations have become powerful communications vehicle if done right. The last one hundred years have seen more than 770 recorded private revelations of which no more than 40 or so have been approved by the church.  It has become a commodity and every generation has at least a dozen doomsayers competing to get your attention i what they claim to be direct messages from divine authority that many fall prey to. 

Going into the doomsaying scam business with private revelations as its product is not for the faint of heart. It will require you to harness all the forms of deception that effectively makes it more insidious, more cunning, and more deleterious than even the notorious but effective propaganda of Goebbels in the 1930s.  The messages from your contrived private revelations provide the product, and the more deceptive they are, the higher the income you can expect from you scam business.  

You need to understand that the content of false prophecy puts you in enmity with the established church order and will require essentially the powers of hell for you to remain in business. There are risks of being exposed for sure,  Anything you say will be an object of contention and even derision by devout Catholics who are well-informed about catechism, scripture or the magisterium. But not to worry, your target audience is not them as we shall see in the next lesson.
