There is a prophecy among the Catholics predicted by a few saints. That the world will be engulffed by a darkness that can be felt. That all evil will be purged from the surface of the world. Many think it will coenside with the end of the world. That this is how ,when Jesus returns, He will wipe away the last of the dwindelling evil doers and the rightous will enherit the world. Like the end of the world it has been predicted to happen several times and obviously hasn’t yet.
This is not the first time we have heard of something like this though. The nineth plauge of Moses, that he inflicted on Egypt from the Lord. Was a thick darkness that blocked all light and was palaple. It could be felt. It was not just a pitch blackness. It is unnerving when you are in the dark. You can’t see anything around you and it makes you nervous. But this was not that kind of darkness, it was a darkness that could be physically felt. On your skin and body. When you moved through it you could feel yourself moving through it. It was oppressive. It had a weight that could be felt and understood that it was the darkness. It paralyzed the people. It halted all work and made them uneasy. It caused them to become paniced and probably pointed fingers and acted out in riots. The pharoh was powerless to do anything about it. This too lasted three days.
The first signs will be. The wind will howl and roar. Lightning and thunder will fill the skies like never seen before. The whole earth will shake, heavenly bodies will be disturbed. Every Demon, every evil spirit will be released from hell and allowed to roam the earth. Terrifying apparitions will take place. Many will die from sheer fright. Fire will rain forth from the sky, all large cities will be destroyed, poisonous gases will fill the air, cries and lamentations everywhere. The unbelievers will burn in the open like withered grass. The entire earth will be afflicted it will look like a huge graveyard.
To survive this as soon as you see these signs head indoors and stay there. Close all the doors and windows. Close the blinds and curtains. Do not look outside and do not open the doors for any reason. Do not answer any calls you may hear from outside. Anyone outside will perish. Bring your pets inside. Be sure to pet any large animals and pray over them. Animals that have been touched by a rightous person will be spared. Bring your family in the same room as you and light a blessed candle. This will be the only light that will work. Electric lights, even flashlights, other candles, and any other source of light, will not work during these three days. No tv. radio or phones will work either. Keep your family together and pray. The entire home will shake except for the table on which the blessed candle will sit. This is what they say. Once lit the candles will not go out. Not for the three days. These candles will not burn in th ehouse of the Godless only the faithful.
Similar to the Isrealites in Egypt. When the darkness decended on Egypt they had no lights at all, but the Isrealites had light in their homes. It was the only light there was.
Keep on hand a supply of water and if possible food. Enough to last three days. Sprinkle holy water around your house and mostly around the doors and windows. This will give extra protection to keep out evil spirits.
Spend this time in prayer adn singing hymns.
