“In the center of hell I saw a dark and horrible-looking abyss. Lucifer (Satan) was cast into it in chains, and it simmered black around him. It all happened according to certain laws. I know that Lucifer, if I’m not mistaken, will be released again for a period of fifty or sixty years before the year 2000 after Christ.”
The Christian prophecies reveal that the end times will see a staggering reduction in the human population. Even some of the God-fearing will not be able to escape the collective retribution. The early Christian author Lactantius likewise echoed this grim fate:
“For the human race will be so consumed, that scarcely the tenth part of men will be left; and from whence a thousand had gone forth, scarcely a hundred will go forth. Of the worshippers of God also, two parts will perish; and the third part, which shall have been proved, will remain.”
Here is another vision about the cleansing period from a 17th-century German priest known as Venerable Father Bartholomew Holzhauser.
“It is a period of defections, calamities and exterminations. Those Christians who survive the sword, plague and famines, will be few on earth.”

With so many predictions pointing to a dismal fate for humankind, one might ask if there’s anything we can do!
“Every day, if I see the news, people die, over millions already. But that is the minimized number. The real number is more. Even the real infected number is also more. And it’s the time for retribution. No one can do anything about it. I can rescue the souls only if they repent. Physically speaking, they have to go through this time of cleansing and payments.”
There is hope if we have faith and are repentant for our misdeeds. Then, at least, our souls can be saved, even if our physical bodies cannot. This is the Divine promise being made at this time through Supreme Master Ching Hai.
“I help their souls, whatever souls I can help. If they’re repentant. If they’re praying in their heart. I’m sure at this time of the world’s trouble and at their time of death, they would be praying and repenting. And this is also good. So it’s easier for me to help them. (Yes, Master. Thank You, Master.) Yes, to help their souls. It’s more important. We die sooner or later, but if your soul is liberated, that is the best thing.”
According to Christian beliefs, the prophesied period of trials, called the Great Tribulation, will precede the Second Coming of the Worshipped Lord Jesus Christ and an age of peace. As part of the process, Satan is to exercise control over the planet for a certain duration, and this would be allowed by God.
In the early 1820s, a Catholic lay devotee from Italy, known as Blessed Elisabetta Canori Mora, saw in her inner vision: “God… with a single gesture of His omnipotent right hand, will punish these wicked ones, allowing the powers of darkness to come out of hell, and these great legions of demons shall overrun the earth, and by means of great ruins shall execute the orders of Divine justice, to which these evil spirits are subject…”
Meanwhile, in Germany, the breatharian nun Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich revealed her experience: “In the center of hell I saw a dark and horrible-looking abyss. Lucifer (Satan) was cast into it in chains, and it simmered black around him. It all happened according to certain laws. I know that Lucifer, if I’m not mistaken, will be released again for a period of fifty or sixty years before the year 2000 after Christ.”
It is true that during these years, unprecedented chaos really did shake our world. There have been massive conflicts and famines; the massacring of animals; and the shocking destruction of forests, land and oceans, not to mention accelerating climate change; the increase in killer chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer; and widespread deaths due to meat, tobacco, alcohol, and new addictive drugs.
Could all these atrocities have been a result of Satan’s influence on human beings? An explanation can be found in the writings of Maria Valtorta, an Italian Catholic who was the recipient of frequent dictations from Lord Jesus Christ in 1943, during World War II.
“Jesus further says: ‘I told you one day that in this present tragedy, the forces of Satan are already in motion; he has sent his black angels to mobilize the kingdoms of the earth against each other. The little human cause is not at all the origin of it. It is not. The true cause which makes brothers into so many murderous beasts biting and killing each other, is another. Only one is the executor of this ruin. One who is on the earth because you want him there, but he is not of this earth. It is Satan that pulls the strings of this slaughter, in which more souls than bodies die. This is one of the initial battles. The kingdom of the Antichrist needs a cement made of blood and hatred to become consolidated.’”
In various lectures, Supreme Master Ching Hai has expounded on Satan, or maya’s, control upon our world.
“The root cause of all conflicts is not each other but the system of this physical realm, arranged by the king of illusion, the negative force, to make all beings pitted against each other in a forever, endless cycle of attachment and vengeance and violence. Not only there are tricks and traps, there are spawning webs of destruction shooting out piercing energy, knife-like, arrow-like, bullet-like, making people or animals agitated, feel painful inside and aggressive outside, because of the pain, the invisible pain, that they endure. Then, of course, they quarrel with each other, fight and kill each other for no justified reason. Then it becomes a habit; then it becomes natural for them to live their lives in such destructive patterns; then conflicts, wars will break out, or disasters, and so on and so forth. This world is like that. Only the lucky ones escape this network of maya.”
“Because there are full of different kinds of ghosts and demons and all kinds of things that still try to seduce people into the wrong path. It’s just like the maya, the devil, they like these kinds of things, so that they can keep the souls in prison forever, in their grip of power.”
Master has also helped to shed light on the reason why God would allow hell beings to come up and cause suffering in our world.
“It’s also because of the zealous demons, the Astral Level influence, the hell level influence, that makes people listen to them that way and do that way, this way, to harm others or to make war.
But it is also because the world karma is piling up, up to the extent that it’s almost like astral energy or almost like hell energy. So like would attract like. Then the gate of hell, the gate of Astral Level will open. And these bad devil beings will come up and cause trouble between humans, between humans and animals, between animals and animals even. (Yes.) That’s the way it is, like that. So, humans as a whole also partake in this karma. And we cannot just blame the devils alone.
Whenever the humans in that country or related to the (government) office do something bad or harming others – harming more and more animals, or harming people in war or something like that, in some aggressive manner, and killing – then the hell road gate will open automatically. (Yes, Master.) And the demons jump out immediately. So, even God cannot stop that. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have to have Masters to come down. Just close all the hell roads or lock all the hells, and nothing will happen. But the humans will not improve. The humans continue to be bad, wicked, barbarous, killing, harassing, or torturing each other or animals. (Yes, Master.) And that will not be fair. And God has to be fair. Heaven has to be fair.
Even if demons are locked in hell for thousands of years, but when there’s too much bad karma, bloody debt in the world, then they are allowed to come up. So, as long as humans do not change their way of life to more benevolence and compassionate way of life, then there will be trouble all the time.”
“Oh! It’s very sad, but if people don’t change, they will be screened out in different ways, in disasters, or in accidents, or in war. We have to change quick. We have to stop killing animals or killing each other. Then it’s very quick. The world will become Heaven. Very simple. It’s not much to do. Just be vegan, make peace. That’s it.”
