Over the years the Visionary Ivan has been known to speak very carefully about some of the aspects of Medjugorje particularly regarding the subject of the “secrets” With this knowledge one can place, perhaps, a little extra weight on what Ivan has revealed about medjugorje’ 10 secrets.
Ivan was very carefully asked when the permanent sign from God will appear on earth. Question: “Do you know when the permanent sign is going to come?
Question: “Is it going to be in your lifetime?
The third secret of Medjugorje is to be a Lasting Sign. The visionaries are not able to say what the sign will be, but they have said that it will be a permanent sign, beautiful and indestructible, and all who come to Medjugorje will be able to see it.
On one occasion, speaking to Father Livio, Ivan was asked about this time of trial and the difficulties the Church is facing right now. Father Livio: Is it fair to say that the “time of secrets” will be a time of great trial for the Church and for the world? Ivan: “Yes. With regard to secrets we can not say anything.
I can only say that it is a very important time, especially for the Church. We must all pray for this intention “. Our Lady has a precise project for the world and for the Church.
Vicka has perhaps had the most to say about the sign and she says she knows when the great sign will appear as well.
The Permanent Sign is the third secret known by the visionaries of Medjugorje. It is the only secret known to all the seers.
At least four of them also know when the sign will appear.
Since the first two secrets have been made and belong to the past at the time of the third secret, the sign will be perceived and experienced by people in the light of the first two secrets, or at least in light of the first Mirjana said that “will make people shake “And” will make people look at themselves in a new light “.
The Permanent Sign is destined to change more hearts because it has been preceded by the first two secrets. And according to the visionaries, changing hearts is all that the sign will concern.
More than anything, they say, the sign will be given to those who do not believe: “The third secret concerns the sign that Our Lady will leave here, on the mountain of apparitions. This sign will remain forever. It will be given above all for those people who are still far from God. Our Lady wants to give these people who will see the sign another chance to believe in God, “Vicka told Radio Maria in January 2008.
A previous interview with Mirjana supports Vicka’s statements.
“They will perceive the sign as a place where they can be converted. They will go to the mountain to pray and they will be forgiven “, Mirjana prophesied in 1983.
“When the permanent sign comes, people will come here from all over the world in even greater numbers. Many others will believe, “said Jakov.
A Test for the Hearts
However, according to the visionaries, there will also be people who will see the sign and still will not believe it, or who will not receive the impulse to convert that instead many other people will receive seeing it:
“I want to tell those people who will see and do not believe, that Our Lady leaves everyone free to believe or not, but these are those whose hearts are too closed. It is the same thing that Our Lady told us:
If one wants to go to Heaven, he will go to Heaven. If one wants to go to hell, he will go to hell
