Are We Coming To the End of the World? by John Cali and Spirit

I received the following letter from one of our readers. With her permission, I’m including it here. Following her letter is our response.


Do you believe we are in the times or at least within 30-40 years of the Antichrist? Or do you think that Revelations was made up to put fear in people and so now it’s being followed?

I’m a Pisces and the energy is very weird since the new year began. I’m empathic and psychic on certain levels. I had a breakdown last week and have lost my footing in all I believe in. Things are topsy turvy for me.

And with all these truths coming out about the government and the world, I’m feeling it on an emotional level. Removing the fear is hard because I fear more for my son’s future. I felt paralyzed last week, unable to see how I would move forward in my career and my very big dreams that might seem impossible now.

I’m frightened and feeling more lost than ever. My spiritual footing was firm and deeply grounded, and now I don’t know what to believe anymore. I turn 33 next week, and I never thought that in my lifetime that this veil would be lifted and I would see the world as it really is, and I’m terrified.

I feel others are passive or don’t want to discuss it. I feel very alone and confused more than I’ve been in my life.

My dreams of possibly getting married one day don’t even seem important or as if they will happen. Is this the end once again? The cyclical ending of our life on earth until we reincarnate again? Things feel very scary to me.

Thank you,



There is no such thing as the Antichrist. It exists as a fiction created by human fear, just as Satan does. Neither are real. They are only fear-based myths.

Although most religions were started with good intentions, many have become fear-based institutions intending to control and manipulate their followers.

What your planet is experiencing right now could be described as a “cleansing”—a time of letting go of the old ways that no longer work or serve you. It’s a time of increasing awareness, of heightening consciousness. It’s a time of moving back into the memory of who you really are and why you are here on this planet.

This not the end. It’s only a new beginning. There are no endings, only new beginnings.

You are not seeing the world as it really is. You’re seeing it only through the eyes of fear.

Fear does not exist in the realm of Spirit. In Spirit there is only love.

Start off every day, as soon as you get out of bed, by looking into your own eyes in a mirror. Then say “Emili, I love and accept you just as you are.” Repeat that three times, and do it every day.

As you do that more and more, you’ll radiate love to yourself and everyone around you, and beyond you. As you move more fully into the embrace of love, you won’t even notice all the things “wrong” with the world. There is nothing wrong with the world–unless you are seeing it through the eyes of fear.

Let go of the fear. Choose only love.


As Mooji, that wonderful spiritual teacher, says in this video, we are not at the end of the world—only at the end of an ancient journey back to ourselves.

    Because you offered Mooji to us, I will say that I read his “Quotes of the Day” every day. Sometimes there are no new ones. I found today’s quote to be very simple and very direct. I am offering it here:

    O Lord, wash away every seed of poisonous duality and identity so that inside HERE there is only You.

    ~ Mooji

      Thanks very much, Susan. He’s a treasure to us all.

      Love and blessings to you also,

    I feel it is all up to what a person believe. Like John/Spirit messages has thought me all these years. It will end for some and not for others. My spiritual connection to Chief Joseph/John messages/teachings. Has allowed me to see things and the world in a way I never did before. I’m comfortable with myself and who I Am, no matter what the negative bombardments are whether from media, friends or relatives. I Am the one responsible for how I feel and what I believe. So as long as I can stay centered in my heart. Nothing really matters. John/Chief Joseph has really taught me a great deal especially during this times of chaos we live in. And for that, thank you!! Namaste!!!

    Thank you for this offering and all that you do! Happy Valentine’s Day…

      Thank you, Susan, for your kindness. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too, belatedly.

    Emili, In addition to what John commented on while looking into your own eyes, reflected in the mirror every morning, you might consider to also say to yourself:

    “Emili, I love, accept, admire and appreciate you just as you are.”

    Just a thought; maybe it will be of help. Wish you well,



  5. Joseph k

    Maybe it would help to look at it this way
    It’s the beginning times ,of great opportunity ,possibility ,potential for growth and evolution
    Best to focus on the time of renewal and rebirth of. Better civilisation and world for all
    rather than the end an breaking down of all the old bs that doesn’t work that well anyway
    A few suggestionsht might help
    The book of transformation by the psychic author lisa barretta
    The earth life series by orin/sanaya roman ,very supportive channeled matirial tht deals with the current transition/shift to higher conciousness and. More light filled reality ,both personal and global/universal , there’s helpful excerpts at
    Also bashars powerful channeled matierial ,a lot of it available free on youtube
    James redfields tenth insight books deal with all this stuff ,including end time/transition prophecies and the way forward, the world vision fi th future etc
    It seems fairly obvious we r in the twilight stage of.dying decadent matierialistic culture and civilisation ,moving into the bright new dawn of a new more positive humane paradigm
    Yes ther are many prophecies that were given to prepare us for ‘the shift’ to a new age
    The age of Aquarius moving on from the age of Pisces which started with the birth of Jesus
    Way back then ,
    Th book indigo ducts explain all this and all thts involved very well
    The ‘tuning in ‘film and book deal with all this also very well ,john and Joseph are in that too!
    The hopi prophecy tells of. Great purification and then time of renewal
    The warriors of the rainbow prophecy is worth looking up to, dealing with these times
    We are living in a volatile time of great flux
    Ther r grat opportunities also
    If you just stay centred and grounded, focused on what you want in life and hav clear intentions in the world
    There are many prophets and teachers at this time of great change
    I’ve been listening to Terence McKenna talks on youtube recently ,he very aptly deals with many ofth issues facing us now in a warm and interesting way
    Also been reading kingsley Dennis’s new revolutions for a small planet
    Where he deals with an goes through the variety of issues we no face as a global community
    Another guy in on this is peter Russell who in waking up in time goes on about these things
    He actually makes th observance that the antichrist actually is a symbol forth false saviour of matierialism etc run amok in our society and destroying our world and ourselves
    Basically the lower self and its traits, fear etc ,but is counteracted by our higher nature inner knowing and divinity -the Christ within ,which will eventually win according to the revelations
    Basically there is an inner war between good and bad ,fear and love etc etc
    As someone said its a battle in the air or n intellectual battle
    We can see it playing out everyday in th media in our lives etc
    just different way of explaining the same thing
    The end of the times of darkness and fear into the world of light,peace harmony and love
    The end of the Kali Yuga -age of darkened entering the age of light
    From age of Pisces into age of Aquarius and all of the qualities that brings
    It’s a fairly steep climb but it worth it for all the benefits it brings
    Oh and another one on all this ,bringers of the dawn by Barbara marciniak
    I gave up pretty much on the tv junk culture at this stage, waste of time and pollution of the mind/emotions
    The media is run by just a few corporations who have a Vested interest in keeping the global and national gossip/scandal mill turning
    They’d be out of a job if they didn’t create more commotion to cash in on
    So best to ignore the most of it ,it’s just a big spectacle to keep people occupied and stuck in negative energies/mindset
    Anyway I hope that helps in some way
    The beginning is nigh !

    Hi John & Emili,

    This is a great and timely article John. I feel very strongly that we are called to transmute fear from the planet at the moment. I think that is part of what we came here to do. As Spirit said, we need to let go of fear and choose love. There is so much fear-mongering in the mass consciousness at the moment we also have to be aware that the fear we feel may not actually be ours. If we are vibrating at the level of fear we can attract more from the fear-based mass consciousness. So it’s worth checking in with yourself to see if the fear you are feeling is yours or not. I have been working on this myself recently. 🙂

    Emili, along with Spirit’s message this video message from Kryon might help you make sense of things.


    • John Cali

      Thanks very much, Barbara.

      You make an excellent point — sometimes, maybe often, the fear we are feeling is not coming from within us, but from the mass consciousness. Your advice is very wise — we need to check in with ourselves to see if the fear is ours or not.

      Thank you for sharing the Kryon video. I watched it yesterday. It’s very powerful and uplifting — a perfect antidote to any fear we may be feeling.


  7. Pat

    I can feel what Mooji is saying. It’s what I’ve been feeling and working through.

    In a manner of speaking, there is an end, but an end to old thinking, beliefs, habits that no longer serve us. We’re being rebirthed to the knowledge of who we truly are.

  8. Ken

    Thank you, John .. A simple, but brilliant response

  9. Sarah D

    Hi John,
    I remember the book of Revelation pretty clearly as the basis of the bible teachings during my youth. I was actually taught to believe that I would die at Armageddon if I didn’t adhere to the teachings. We were also taught that these are the end times. Scary stuff so I have great empathy for Emili. I also remember the Omen films about the rise of the antichrist!!
    Revelations is, if I remember correctly, a book of prophecy yet if we are creating our ‘future’ in every moment, I question it’s validity.
    I enjoyed the kryon video Barbara kindly posted. I have been experiencing an awful lot of fear lately for no real reason. I stay away from the media as much as possible but find some of my family are obsessed by the negative stuff in the news and in life in general so it’s really hard to get away from it.

    • John Cali

      Hi Sarah,

      I studied theology for 8 years in high school and college. But I always had a hard time with Revelations, and with that whole Armageddon scenario. As with you now, then I also questioned its validity. Now I know why. 🙂

      The Kryon video Barbara posted is very powerful — it certainly would help anyone living with fear. Like you, I put distance between myself and the negative news. Surprisingly (to some folks) there is a lot of good news out there — you just have to look for it.

      Blessings to you too, Sarah.

      • Sarah D

        Were your theology classes based around Catholicism or did they encompass other faiths? I didn’t really study religion in school, but had private bible study lessons. This progressed to knocking on doors selling magazines and trying to recruit people to have bible studies and attend meetings. How times have changed!!

        • John Cali

          They were basically Catholic. But my teachers were Jesuit priests. As you may know, many of the Jesuits are open-minded and, some might say, liberal. So they did teach us about other religions also. I valued their teachings. I remained good friends with one of the priests long after I graduated, until his death a few years ago.

          Pope Francis is a Jesuit. I suspect his more compassionate approach, compared to other recent popes, is at least partly due to his Jesuit background.

          • Sarah D

            Thanks for that John. I must admit, I don’t know an awful lot about the Jesuits but from what you tell me they are admirable people. I have heard beautiful things about Pope Francis.

          • John Cali

            You’re most welcome, Sarah. I will never go back to Catholicism, but I deeply admire Pope Francis and all he’s doing.

        • Barbara

          Hi again, Sarah,
          Bet you’re glad you never knocked on my door. I loved to engage the odd “convertor” who arrived at my door in discussion about the Goddess & God and paganism. That quickly confused them LOL. 🙂
          Night all,
          Barbara x

          • Sarah D

            Hi Barbara,
            I was never very good at the door knocking thing as I think there was always the inherent belief that if people want religion or a spiritual path they will find it themselves. I also moved onto Paganism in my teens and was fascinated by Witchcraft. Xx

    • Barbara

      Hi Sarah,
      There were some pretty scary teachings and nothing to balance them with when we were kids!!

      I know you do EFT now and presume you’ve done some sessions on your fear. Some of the things I experienced last year had me literally paralised by fear. I am not 100% clear of it yet but I’m a lot better.

      If you’ve done a lot of clearing (I’ve done a ton!) you might like to try something I kind of invented for myself. Try calling the pure essence and energy of the opposite of what you are feeling in to yourself. I used “safety” and I felt the energy coming in and swirling at my stomach and lower back. It felt really good and I feel a lot better. I remain a work in progress however. 🙂

      I’d love to know how you get on with that if you decide to give it a try.

      Barbara x

      • Sarah D

        Hi Barbara,
        I think religious education has come on leaps and bounds. Comparative religion is a huge step forward. Even in primary schools our children could join in celebrations such as Diwali and Eid and one year my little ones learned about the Jewish Succot!!

        I haven’t done any EFT for ages and it’s something I must get back into. I can totally empathise with your experiencing intense fear for I am the same. Not constantly but sudden attacks out of nowhere.

        I have also done a lot of clearing in the last few years. After having a complete breakdown I was forced to make some hefty lifestyle changes which have been highly beneficial. Also, my belief system has changed and progressed in a really positive manner. I hope you manage to get clear of your fear. It’s a debilitating thing.

        I will definitely try your super suggestion, calling in the opposite essence to the fear. I liked that you feel the energy around your stomach. That’s where I feel my anxiety, in my solar plexus area.

        Thanks again Barbara, love and thanks,
        Sarah x

        • Barbara

          You are so welcome, Sarah,
          Love and hugs.

    The end of times……life is ever flowing, ever growing and we change as we partake in this life. Will the world end with a bang………but then that is how it began with a joyful explosion, grand thoughts becoming a reality. We are here and not here at the same time. We are energy, alive and conscious of who we are and energy never ends, energy changes, transforms but never, ever ends. So no the world is eternal as we are, we change, the world changes. Fear is a way of giving us pause, making us look deeper into ourselves and there is where we find, our truth, our guide, our eternal self always becoming and changing.

    love and hugs

  11. Su Crutchfield

    Excellent answer, John! You went right to the center of it all. Perfection!

  12. Tiat

    No it’s not the end of the world. IMHO Fear is the ruling emotion on the planet at this time, underneath greed is fear. The world is your/my mirror so what you see is a reflection of what is going on inside us. Otherwise I tend to agree with what others have posted.

    What if the day of final judgment is the day we all stop judging?

  13. Lydia

    I went through a black period in December, pulled myself out by looking at the light, the perfection of spirit, the magnificence of our just being. What a journey it all is. My heart is still hung between peaking at the horrors in dismay and embracing the light, love path to the unknown magic of it all. Blessings and Gratitude to all you brave and beautiful ones.
