In the Bible, it is clear that God does “seal” knowledge, wisdom, and revelations in the hearts of those who follow Him, and that these concealed truths can be “quickened” or made alive at the right moments as they are needed. This is depicted in such texts as Matthew chapter 10, where Jesus says to His disciples: “But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you” (Matthew 10:19–20; emphasis added). That this reflects a deep partnership between our personal devotions and studies (2 Timothy 2:15, Psalm 119:11) and the indwelling Holy Spirit as part of the mystical union God has with all members of the true Church—the Body of Christ—can also be seen in Proverbs 3:6, which says, “In all thy ways acknowledge him [that’s us doing our part], and he shall direct thy paths [His part].” Again, the book of John (6:63) refers to the Holy Spirit as the one “that quickens” (Greek: zōopoieō, “to cause to live, to make alive at that moment”) the Word of God as well as those “sealed instructions” that Job talked about.

I’m not sure how this experience plays out for others, but several times in my life and at times completely unexpected (always at night when I am asleep), I have been jolted from bed with an extraordinary glimpse that I believe is taken from that original storyboard God gave me years ago, and about which I begged Him not to “let me forget.” One time, for example, I was shaken from sleep by a very powerful and detailed list of things that would happen in the former religious institution in which I had been an executive. I jumped from bed, wrote down the vision as I had seen it—including names of people who would be involved, exactly what they would do, and how it would greatly damage the ministry if the district leaders did not intervene (they didn’t, and it did)—then I sent that detailed letter to the state superintendent, plus gave copies to my son, Joe Ardis, and my wife, Nita. Within three years, everything played out exactly as I had seen it, down to the smallest details. In fact, my vision was so precise that it shook Joe up, causing him to come to me after the fact to express his amazement as to how it could have been possible for me to foresee such comprehensive events that accurately.

Another “quickening” that came to me in the middle of the night, and one that much of the world knows about now, involves how I was able to precisely predict the historic resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in the best-selling book Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here (FREE IN COLLECTION HERE), as well as on television and radio more than a year in advance.

This began with a series of preternatural events too long to list in this series, during which time—in 2010—I was again rattled from sleep and instantly convinced that Benedict would step down in April 2012 using “health reasons” as a cover for his abdication. I went on television and radio (and out on a limb, quite frankly) in 2011, as the book Petrus Romanus was being written and rushed through editing, typesetting, and print so that it could be in stores before the anticipated resignation of the pope. We even wrote specifically on page 470 of that work that the pope would step down in April of 2012.

As the year 2012 came and went, and neither Pope Benedict nor the Vatican made any announcement that he was stepping down, I thought that perhaps for the first time since I had woken up in heaven years earlier, the “sealed,” Job-like “instructions” mechanism either had not worked or I had been mistaken. Yet, as the months passed, I somehow remained convinced that I had seen the vision correctly! I would email friends and say, “It’s not over till it’s over,” while at the same time saying to myself, What are you talking about? Benedict is still the pope!

Then something happened that the world knows about now: On February, 28, 2013, at 8 o’clock p.m., the resignation of Benedict was announced by the Vatican, which immediately gave the New York Times an interview in which it made the astonishing admission: Pope Benedict had SECRETLY AND OFFICIALLY resigned to select members of the Curia in April 2012, just as I had said he would. This was immediately confirmed by Giovanni Maria Vian, the editor of the official Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, who wrote that the pope’s decision had been “taken many months ago,” after his trip to Mexico and Cuba ended in March 2012, and had been “kept with a reserve that no one could violate”[i] (meaning it was to remain top secret and was to be known only to a handful of trusted Vatican cardinals until preparations for Benedict’s housing and the public announcement was ready).

Since no pope had resigned in nearly six hundred years and everybody had been saying I was crazy (because “popes do not resign, they die in office”), this revelation was astounding, and media everywhere went crazy! My office phone didn’t stop ringing for weeks, with top media from around the world (including Rome) wanting to interview me to ask who my “insider at the Vatican” was. Even fake-news CNN begged me to come on their program, which I declined. The History Channel pleaded with me to participate in a special series, which I also declined.

But why am I talking about this now? Is it so I can pat myself on the back and brag about how accurate my prediction was?

Not at all.

I’m raising this issue because, early in 2019, the phenomenon happened again. And this “quickening” was the most vivid and terrifying of all such ekstasis yet.

So I would beg the reader: Given that, so far, these visions have been extraordinarily accurate and stated publicly beforehand against all odds, I pray that you will consider what was published in The Wormwood Prophecy (Charisma House, December 3, 2019) involving the newest spectacular revelation.

Like usual, I had gone to bed one evening in April of 2019, not anticipating anything unusual, when, at around 2 o’clock the next morning, I “awoke” in a hyperdimensional reality and saw in the heavens above me what looked like a horned, fiery serpent, hundreds of feet wide, plunging past the stars toward earth at an incomprehensible speed. This terrifying monster seemed to be swimming across the sky, past the planets, as it descended toward the earth.

Then, suddenly, my point of view shifted, and I was lifted above the massive object only to realize it was not a dragon after all, but rather a very large rock, and the way it was rolling through space it caused the light of the sun to glide over its contours, giving it the appearance of something undulating through space like a living thing.

The next thing I knew, I was on a tall hill or mountain somewhere, surrounded by thousands of people. We were running, terrified, and people were screaming for God to deliver us from the menace barreling through the sky toward this planet.

Moments later, I heard a deafening sound. It was as if the earth was splitting apart, the ground beneath our feet jerking violently, knocking us to the soil where we bounced viciously against the rocks, desperately reaching out for anything we could cling onto for stability.

Somehow, I knew an asteroid had plunged into the Pacific Ocean, its massive form sending a sequence of tsunamis hundreds of feet into the air.

As I glanced over my shoulder, I could see an overwhelming wall of water coming up over the hillside behind us. I perceived we wouldn’t be able to escape.

But then, it was as if two very large hands slid under my arms, lifting me high into the sky, where, looking down, I watched in shock as people everywhere were swept away by astonishingly large waves slamming into coastal terrains as far as I could see. The atmosphere was simultaneously infused with scorched particles of aerosol and vapor as a blistering culmination of moisture and extreme heat subsequently combusted into a series of high-velocity hurricanes. Tornadoes, volcanoes, and earthquakes seemed to be going off like fireworks with what were likely some of the eleven deadliest volcanoes on earth—those of the Cascadia region of the United States—being triggered like dominos, releasing so much debris into the sky that, for about a week, darkness covered the heavens worldwide as the entire landscape was pounded by hurricanes and atmospheric annihilation circulating within the jet stream. By the time days later when the waters finally settled, storms subsided and the sky grew clear, much of life on earth was dead.

When I awoke, I nearly fell out of bed.


Grabbing for pen and paper to record what I had seen, I was unexpectedly interrupted by what seemed like an audible voice. It could have just been in my head, but it seemed spoken to me. The voice uttered a single word—Apophis.

Now, I knew there was an ancient Egyptian god of chaos and enemy of light known by that name.

I also knew that NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) had named an asteroid Apophis, but didn’t know any details about it.

When I got out of bed and headed for my computer to begin research on this particular space rock, I also didn’t anticipate that a year-long investigation would ensue that ultimately would lead me to uncover evidence of a cover-up by NASA, ESA (European Space Agency), and other space organizations involving the likelihood of Apophis impacting the earth in less than nine years from now—Friday, April 13, 2029.

And, just so you know, my startling conclusions are shared by members of the government whom I spoke with, science experts of the first rank who have written peer-reviewed articles on this matter,[ii] astronomers, and mathematicians (including one who sent a warning letter to President Trump[iii] seeking action on this case), and others, all cited and documented in the book, The Wormwood Prophecy.

But the mystery of that revelation has gotten deeper since I wrote Wormwood, and it wasn’t until after that book was in print and I was doing media interviews on its claims that the biggest revelations involving Apophis came to light.

Those secrets are what a new 6-week investigative series on SkyWatch TV and the earth-shaking revelations in the book THE MESSENGER is about and involve why I am know calling Apophis by this name. The “transmission” it is bringing with it will soon unveil one of the scariest—and strangest—wonders connected to Bible prophecy.
