Gerald Celente Discusses His "Greatest Fear"

His really unpleasant predictions start kicking in around the 5:00 minute mark, but the whole message is dismal. I don't know much about the host, so please don't assume I'm endorsing him, because I'm not. But I do find Celente's take on the economic crisis to be worth listening to.

  2. One caveat to readers, Mr. Madrid: Alex Jones is perhaps the most infamous conspiracy theorist in the United States--9/11 Truther, alien abductions, you name it and he believes it and encourages it. That's not to say anything about Celente's forecast, but I find his choice of language interesting and perhaps a bit too conspiracy-minded for my tastes.

    Perhaps the most important thing we should take away form all of this as Catholics is to trust in God and not to worry about earthly troubles and tribulations, for our true home is in Heaven with Him who made us. I know too many people who hear these types of warnings (and again, I'm not saying a major financial collapse is impossible) and lose all sense of proportion, ending up in despair and even suicidal. We must trust in God first and foremost and know that He will take care of us.

    That said, I do think the Church and the world are increasingly experiencing apocalyptic phenomena. As for me, I'll trust in the Lord if we are indeed going to be witnesses to the Apocalypse in our lifetimes.

  4. There is a book called "Trial, Tribulation and Triumph" that goes over end-time prophecies. It is very well written and documented. It discourages the idea that the Anti-Christ is among us, and gives reasons for that conclusion. It's a very level-headed work with a wealth of information from Church resources. Makes a good case that the end is not near. But doesn't deny the fact that we're living in seriously depraved times.

  6. While I agree that we need to prepare for the near future, we also need to avoid a survivalist "me against the world" attitude. We can put stuff away but, as servants of Jesus Christ, we need to be willing to share with others.

  7. Suspect anyone (Alex Jones, not Celente) whose voice is "veiled." Throat is tight. Hiding something. Think of Bill Clinton's voice.

  8. I've looked at Celente's website and watched some of the videos with him doing guest appearances on radio shows and tv shows. He's pretty mainstream. I think Alex Jones brings him on because he takes whoever will come on his show. But Celente has been spot on with many of his financial predictions.

  9. Right before the Anti-Christ comes the conversion of the Jews has to happen, according to scripture and the Early Fathers and some saints. As far as I can tell, that hasn't happened yet. Be I do agree that we are in the time of the Great Disobedience.

  10. I suspect that Mr. Celente is right. The signs are out there.

  11. Alex Jones and Gerald Celente need prayer for God to touch their hearts. "Through God ALL things are possible"----Let's make disgustingly, despairing, hopeless, Apocolyptic predictions made by these men IMPOSSIBLE!!! Done. God loves his creation. People like Alex and Gerald hate people, love money and are drooling about the mouth for crap like this to come to fruition. Thankfully, WE have God.

  12. I know this is coming in a year late, but both Gerald Celente and Alex Jones have strong track records of accurately assessing the true geopolitical situation we are in and where we are going. Catholics need to wake up and not be so narrow minded in prayerfully discerning the signs of the times. Most Catholics live in denial and you can't attack a real cancer if you don't acknowledge it exists. I challenge Catholics to think critically for themselves on geopolitical issues and not be sheeple who analyze geopolitical events by the imposed false left-right political paradigm.

    Our first response is prayer - i.e. Lepanto-style - but we need to know what to direct that prayer to. I pray for Alex's conversion daily, but just because he's not Catholic does not mean he does not understand what the Church is up against. I have found an uncomfortable silence from the Church on key geopolitical issues which have been all but ignored or carelessly acknowledged and addressed.
