When Bible prophecy gets fulfilled (and it always does) things tend to happen “all at once”

From The Apocalypse of Saint John, also known as The Book of Revelation:

Rev 6:1  And I saw that the Lamb had opened one of the seven seals: and I heard one of the four living creatures, as it were the voice of thunder, saying: Come and see. 
Rev 6:2  And I saw: and behold a white horse, and he that sat on him had a bow, and there was a crown given him, and he went forth conquering that he might conquer. 
Rev 6:3  And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying: Come and see. 
Rev 6:4  And there went out another horse that was red. And to him that sat thereon, it was given that he should take peace from the earth: and that they should kill one another. And a great sword was given to him. 
Rev 6:5  And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying: Come and see. And behold a black horse. And he that sat on him had a pair of scales in his hand. 
Rev 6:6  And I heard, as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying: Two pounds of wheat for a penny, and thrice two pounds of barley for a penny: and see thou hurt not the wine and the oil. 
Rev 6:7  And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying: Come and see. 
Rev 6:8  And behold a pale (green) horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death. And hell followed him. And power was given to him over the four parts of the earth, to kill with sword, with famine and with death and with the beasts of the earth. 
Rev 6:9  And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. 
Rev 6:10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord (Holy and True), dost thou not judge and revenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 
Rev 6:11  And white robes were given to every one of them one; And it was said to them that they should rest for a little time till their fellow servants and their brethren, who are to be slain even as they, should be filled up. 
Rev 6:12  And I saw, when he had opened the sixth seal: and behold there was a great earthquake. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair: and the whole moon became as blood. 
Rev 6:13  And the stars from heaven fell upon the earth, as the fig tree casteth its green figs when it is shaken by a great wind. 
Rev 6:14  And the heaven departed as a book folded up. And every mountain, and the islands, were moved out of their places. 
Rev 6:15  And the kings of the earth and the princes and tribunes and the rich and the strong and every bondman and every freeman hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of mountains: 
Rev 6:16  And they say to the mountains and the rocks: Fall upon us and hide us from the face of him that sitteth upon the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb. 
Rev 6:17  For the great day of their wrath is come. And who shall be able to stand? 

All of these things have certainly happened before, but something is different, this time around.

If I had to name two or three things that really stand out, it would be the staggering level of apostasy in the Church, coupled with the historic level of corruption in governments and other formerly respected, public institutions, all around the world.

The other would be the very widespread, idolatrous, “magical thinking”, where damaged, irrational people are encouraged to declare themselves (often with government approval) to be something they are not and never will be, while demanding that sane, rational people tacitly go along or publicly approve the ruse/lie/fraud, to avoid “offending” and/or being legally, financially, or socially sanctioned.

The last time I checked, only God had the ability to speak something into existence, from nothing at all and his ways (commandments) are well known, so the whole lot of these damaged/demented ones, along with their patrons, sponsors, supporters, proxies and policies are clearly and deliberately working against God; and we all know how that comes out, in the end.

Any major escalation or increase in any or all of the apocalyptic categories, especially beginning on or about this year’s Feast of Pentecost (June 5, 2022) would be a strong, confirming sign of even more chaos, soon to come.

In the mean time, sane, sensible people will continue to watch, pray and remain faithfully centered in the Peace of Jesus Christ through full, faithful participation in all the work, worship, sacraments and devotions of the Holy Catholic Church.
