    Luke 21:24
    They will fall by the edge of the sword and be taken as captives to all the Gentiles; and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled


    Acts 26:17
    I shall deliver you from this people and from the Gentiles to whom I send you, to open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may obtain forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been consecrated by faith in me.

    Revelation 12:6
    Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. Although the dragon and his angels fought back, they were overpowered and lost their place in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent known as the devil or Satan, the seducer of the whole world, was driven out; he was hurled down to earth and his minions with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, the reign of our God and the authority of his Anointed One.
    Matthew 6:9 The Lord's Prayer
    "This is how you are to pray: 'Our Father in heaven hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done on earth as it is in heaven
    ...//... Subject us not to trial but
    deliver us from the evil one.'
    Many people seem to think that Jesus is going to come back to earth, riding in on a nuke (WWIII) upon Apocalyptic ‘End Times’. St. Louis De Montfort, and myself, see ‘end times’ as only the end of the world as we know it, under Gentile, world dominant secular power, rule. Christ's Church lives on, through and beyond Armageddon, and into Jesus' 'Kingdom Come' on earth! The Gentile world, not so much so. Jesus' Meek, Humble and Pure of Heart, shall inherit the earth.

    God was King Ruling over Israel, from the Exodus till the fall of Israel in 587 B.C.. God Ruled with and through His Priests, Prophets and kings of Israel. Because of the massive sins of Israel, God relinquished His Crown as King over Israel, and placed world dominant secular power, as king and ruler over Israel. Israel lives in sorrowful exile, without God Ruling over Israel, even to this day. The big event in Apocalyptic, ‘end times’, is our Lord Jesus Christ, taking over as King and Ruler of the world! God will once again Rule over Israel, and the world, under Messianic Reign! Jesus will Rule, on earth, with and through His Church, the Catholic Church.

    ST. LOUIS DE MONTFORT, END TIMES
    divine intervention within salvation history.

    This intermediary stage is the most dynamic and active, because during this stage we pass from the reign of sin to the reign of Jesus Christ in the hearts of men and women. Montfort is convinced that the Kingdom of God in Jesus Christ should not be projected into the hereafter but must come into existence on earth, in this world: "Is it not true that your kingdom must come?" This is the leitmotif of TD from its first sentence: "It was through the blessed Virgin Mary that Jesus Christ came into the world, and it is also through her that he must reign in the world". Who will be able to transform the world? For Montfort there is no doubt: God alone can accomplish such a task. He will intervene with "a deluge of fire, love and justice" through the mediation of the Spirit and the manifold acts of Mary. This divine intervention will be through and in mankind, especially through the "apostles of the end times". Their task will be twofold: " destroying sin and setting up the kingdom of Jesus"....

    ...The work of the apostles of the end times swings essentially around two poles, one negative, the other positive: "destroying sin and establishing the reign of Jesus Christ". The first pole involves a series of aggressive actions against the forces of evil: they"will give battle, overthrowing and crushing", they "will thunder against sin, they will storm against the world, they will strike down the devil and his followers", they "will be the odor of death to the great, the rich and the proud of this world". In the PM, along the same lines, Montfort foresees missionaries who will attack and overthrow the "enemies of God", who will "crush the head of the serpent", "address their ardent prayers to heaven, turning them into the weapons which will overcome or convert their enemies". The positive pole, which is described in more detail, consists of actions directed at the reform of the Church and its extension into the world: their "ministry will renew the face of the earth and reform your Church". With this objective, the apostles of the end times will carry out sanctifying apostolic work: they "will enkindle everywhere the fires of divine love"; "wherever they preach, they will leave behind them nothing but the gold of love"; they will be the "sweet fragrance of Jesus". They will "build the temple of the true Solomon and the mystical city of God", and they will "shower down the rain of God's word and of eternal life". Moreover, they will work to extend the Lord's empire "over the impious, the idolators and Muslims", receiving the deluge of fire that will empower them to convert "Muslims, idolators and even Jews"....

    ... His proposed congregation of missionary priests forms the core of these apostles. But the activity and the mighty battles of the end times must not be reserved to them alone. In two other prophetic texts, Montfort speaks more generally of "chosen souls" in whom Mary will reign sovereign, and he enlarges the horizon to embrace "a mighty legion of brave and valiant soldiers of Jesus and Mary, both men and women"
