In 1984, the Most Rev. John Shojiro Ito, Bishop
of Niigata, Japan, after extensive investigation, declared the
events at Akita in 1973 to be of supernatural origin, and said :
"The message of Akita is the message of Fatima." In June, 1988,
Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger gave the definitive judgment on the
events at Akita and said the messages were reliable and worthy of
On August 3, 1973, the Blessed Virgin gave
Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa the following message: "In order
that the world might know His anger, the Heavenly Father is
inflict a great chastisement on all mankind. With my
son, I have intervened so many times to appease the wrath of the
Father. I have prevented the coming of calamities by offering Him
the sufferings of the Son on the Cross, His Precious Blood, and
beloved souls who console Him and form a cohort of victim souls."
The third and last massage of October 13, 1973:
"....if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father
will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will
be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never
have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a
great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing
neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find
themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms
which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by
my Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary."
"The work of the devil will infiltrate even
into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing
cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate
me will be scorned and opposed by their conferrers (other
priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be
full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many
priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Church."
"Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I
alone am able still to save you from the calamities which
approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved."
The concept of "fire from the sky" is
generally conceded to be a reference to Revelation 8:8, which
reads: "...something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown
into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the
living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were
destroyed." And Verse 10, which described a second impact on land:
"...and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky."
The resulting meteorite shower could very easily burn up one third
of the green grass and forests, and the meteor impacts themselves
could trigger earthquakes along all the tectonic fault lines.
Again, in Isaiah 47:11, "Disaster will come upon you, and you will
not know how to conjure it away. A calamity will fall upon you
that you cannot ward off with a ransom; a catastrophe you cannot
foresee will suddenly come upon you.
