Please note: St. Michael, the Archangel always addresses his messages to the People of the United States of America.
I am Michael, The Archangel.
Your nation, the newly chosen nation of God, is facing a period of doom ? a period of doom that has been brought upon you by your leaders acting in conflict with God's plan for you as well as by your own failings in prayer in reversing the course of events. You are entering a period of great chastisements that can no longer be reversed.
How many times has your nation been warned of its activities while it has paid little or no heed to the warnings? How many times has the Lord interceded on your behalf to bring you back to the principles that at one time made you a great nation? How many times have you turned away from the Lord and pursued you materialism and greed in defiance of His Will for you? How many times have you turned away from His Commandments and His commandment to you to be a nation of high morals and ideals?
How many times have you risked the lives of your children by creating laws and policies that go against the very creation of life? How many times have you been witness to the violence and breakdown of morals and society as a result of your increasingly more liberal policies that have reduced the core beliefs of this once great nation to a shadow of its former self? How many times did you anticipate that you could continue to spit in the face of God before the chastisements would befall you?
Now the time has come when great chastisements will fall upon the Earth. God is not directing these chastisements from the heavenly realm as a direct punishment of His children. The chastisements that have come and are soon to come are a result of your own behaviors and activities. For the way in which you have been conducting yourselves as a nation is the cause of the great turmoil that you are witnessing. How many times have you been warned to return to God's plan for mankind as well as for your nation?
You had once been a chosen nation in the eyes of God but just as your ancestors in Israel you have squandered your opportunities and your gifts from the Lord. You took advantage of these opportunities to enrich yourselves at the expense of others. You took advantage of your freedoms to become licentious and without moral considerations endangering the innocent lives of your children in ever more increasing numbers in greater intensity through successive generations. Now your children to a greater extent have become morally bankrupt because they have been exposed more to the work of Satan and less to the Light of the Heavenly Father.
How long did you think that you could continue to exist flaunting your newfound wealth in the face of the Redeemer and Savior? He came to you upon this Earth to renew God's covenant with mankind and you have squandered that covenant in pursuit of earthly pleasures. Now those pleasures are disappearing before your eyes. The world of pleasure in which you ultimately found no happiness is turning against you now. Now you will be forced to focus your attention on the Redeemer and his plan for mankind for you are entering a period of darkness in which only the Light of the Redeemer will save mankind from its own destruction.
The period of chastisements that is about to follow can no longer be ameliorated, postponed, or amended. The overflowing dams of sin and negative energy generated by man are now flooding your planet and each individual consciousness. Only through a coming closer to the Creator can you save yourselves from the trials before the purification of the planet. Only through the Redeemer can you face the future with courage and without fear. Only through the Redeemer will you find serenity and peace upon the earth in the face of increasingly more chaos and confusion as the very fiber of your civilization begins to unwind and fray.
Fear not if you are living in the Light of the Redeemer for He is with you in these troubled times in more ways than you are personally experiencing and in ways that will become more apparent to you as the veil is lifted. Those of you who are living in the Light will become even closer to the Redeemer and share in an intimacy with Him that is beyond your beliefs. Fear not for He is with you in these troubled times.
Woe to those of you who stay in the darkness or choose to use these times to profit from the misfortunes of others for your souls are doomed to eternal darkness. The Light of God will shine for those of you who reach out to your brothers and sisters of all faiths and beliefs and evangelize and witness on behalf of the true Savior of Life and Light for yours shall be the kingdom of Heaven.
Arise to the times in which you find yourselves. There is great and important work to do in these days of the Lord and He will look kindly upon you for your works of good will in reaching out to your brothers and sisters.
The times are exciting for you if you respond to the challenge. The times will be dark and foreboding for you if you do not. You are living at the most important time in the history of humanity. You are living in a time that has been foretold in prophecy and the prophetic visions of the ancient and latter day saints are unfolding before you. You, as soldiers of God, have a role to fill for the Redeemer in anticipation of His coming to you more fully, more visibly, and in a presence that will overwhelm all of mankind.
Arise to the challenge by responding in prayer, prayer, and prayer to the call of the Redeemer. Do not believe that you are a little person who cannot make a difference. The power of your prayer is seen by the Lord and the power of your prayer can and will make a difference in the world.
Do you want to stand before Him one day and say to Him that you didn?t think your prayer would make a difference? Do not make that mistake! Your prayers and the prayers of all your brothers and sisters are needed more in these times than at any previous time in the history of mankind.
Your nation is now being covered over by the waters as had been foretold and more perilous chastisements will follow. You must bear this burden in the eyes of the Lord. You must stand tall as a brave and courageous prayerful warrior in the eyes of the Lord for only through your prayer can you ultimately make a difference in the world. And when your time upon this earth is over for each and everyone of you, you will want to stand before the Lord as He graces you with His blessing: Well done, oh good and faithful servant!?

Ned Dougherty Commentary on St. Michaels Message
It is my inspired belief that on August 1, 2005, I received interior locutions from St. Michael, the Archangel; followed by Jesus of Nazareth, the title in which Jesus identified Himself to me; and later in the day from Our Lady of Light ? the title that Mary, the Mother of Jesus, has requested in her messages to me. (See August 1st messages below) On September 1, 2005, I believe I received direct messages by interior locution only from St. Michael, the Archangel.
For those of you who are not familiar with the term interior locution, I suggest that you web search the term. The complete text of these messages is available for reading and forwarding or distribution to your email or snail mail correspondents. No permission to distribute or reproduce these messages is required unless it is your intention to distribute them in a commercial manner or for monetary compensation in which case permission is denied.

I originally received a message from St. Michael during my second near-death experience in 1984. This message is also on the website and you can see how this message from 1984 resonates with everything that is happening in the world in 2005. St. Michael has been very influential and inspiring in my life since 1984 and more particularly since the book Fast Lane to Heaven has been published. I usually pray to St. Michael for guidance before I begin to write or whenever I speak in public.
Let me first say that I would prefer not to be the bearer of such foreboding information; I do not consider myself a prophet of doom. I wake up each morning, pray the Rosary, and meditate on its Mysteries, and I am absolutely awestruck by the glory of being alive in God's world. I attend daily Mass and receive the Holy Eucharist, which is the closest I can reach on the face of this Earth to being in Communion with God. If I miss Mass and Communion on any given day, I am out of sorts. Otherwise, I am usually enthusiastic about life and know that I have a purpose in life and a destiny.
Lately, I have been preparing for the future by resting and going to the beach daily in the Hamptons to watch my son Michael surf. For the past several weeks, I have had to chauffer Jacob back and forth to summer school and Michael back and forth to football camp at a Catholic high school on Long Island. I am enthusiastically looking forward to seeing Michael in his first high school game and will cheer like a madman when he does well and get depressed and brood when he doesn?t.
At the age of fourteen, Michael and Jacob are typical teenagers, unfortunately caught up in the pop culture of their generation. They are privileged to be spending their growing years in a beautiful part of God's world but they are also influenced by the darkness of the materialism and greed that permeates the Hamptons. Their innocence and youth have already been robbed by the cultural icons of our times ? in particular MTV, VH1, and BET and the mind-numbing violence and pornography of Hollywood movies, the internet, and most of the television, radio, and print media.
I hope that my conversations with Jacob and Michael will influence their behavior for the better but I am aware that I cannot spend as much time with them as the media can. These media conglomerates are hell bent on turning parents and their children into compulsive, mindless, and robotic consumers. According to statistics, by the time the average child is 5 years old, they have spent more time in front of the TV than they will spend in conversation with Dad by the time they are eighteen years old. How sad!
Inspired by a mother and singer who I recently met in Southampton, NY, I am currently working on a concept that has been on my mind for some time now. I am inspired to call this project P.A.L.M. - Parents Against Liberal Media. Basically, we are formed in the palm of God's hand as innocent children. Today our children are ensnared in the palm of the hand of the evil one due in large part to the media conglomerates. I hope to develop a P.A.L.M. website and welcome your suggestions, ideas, and resources that can be utilized as part of a plan to combat the media's influence on our children.
While I take long and almost daily walks on the beach, I am enthralled with the beauty of nature, and I ponder the terrible conditions that are happening, particularly in the world's war zones and the Gulf States as the result of the first mega-storm, Katrina. I am ever mindful that bad things are happening in other parts of the world and that it is only a question of time before the bad things begin to happen again in my world. I thank God for the times in between.
While the whole world seems to be going to hell in a hand basket, I will continue to try to pay the bills, not forget to pick up the laundry, and hope that my aging Ford Explorer will not break down and then hope that it will, because I can barely afford to fuel it. I am preparing for a trip to France September 12-20 to produce a series of DVDs and CDs for European distribution. On recent trips to Europe, I have realized that most Europeans have not become more secular as the media claims, but they are actually starving for spiritual nourishment. Unfortunately, most Europeans have turned away from the traditional churches, which is a sad commentary on organized religion at a time that spiritual and prayerful warriors are needed in the world.
In short, I believe I am leading a somewhat normal life, hopefully just like you. I am making normal everyday plans, ever mindful that God may have other plans for me, and that's alright with me.
I am not afraid of living, nor am I afraid to die. I do not worry for my physical life. I can?t wait to shed this aging and debilitating physical body and return to my spiritual home. Meanwhile, I am stuck here so I am exercising and trying to lose weight because I am trapped in this gorilla suit until God chooses for me to return to my spiritual home. There are no other options, such as suicide or just plain giving up, so I deal with the reality of living in a physical universe.
I do not worry for the physical life of my family members, my loved ones, my friends, or the rest of my brothers and sisters in the world. I do concern myself with their health and the advancement of their souls and I address that concern through prayer. I do not worry for the future of their souls for worrying is negative thinking gone awry and the work of the evil one.
After all, what's the worst thing that can happen? You die? Get over it! We all die eventually on God's time not our own. No one has ever gotten out of this world alive or in any other way but by death, and you and I are no different. Death arrives like a thief in the night when we least expect it. We may worry to our hearts content over the terrible things that are happening in the world and worry that the next act of terrorism or nature is going to strike out at us or our loved ones, and then after all that worrying, we find out that it is sickness or some other misfortune that overwhelms us, and we didn?t even think or worry about that particular misfortune at all. So, in the words of Mad Magazine's Alfred E. Neuman: What, Me Worry?
Finally, the purpose of this commentary is to provide you with my own humbled opinion as to what is going on in the world today and why I am receiving these ominous messages at this time.
On December 26, 2004, the axis of planet Earth shifted. The shifting is described by scientists as very slight but not without significance. To my knowledge, a shifting of the Earth's axis has not been previously technologically recorded in the history of modern man. However, I believe that at least three major shiftings and many unrecorded minor shiftings of the Earth's axis have taken place since the world was created. Many scientists claim that the shifting of the Earth's axis resulted from the December 26th underwater earthquake that resulted in the Asian Tsunami and the subsequent loss of thousands of lives. I beg to differ; the shifting caused the earthquake and tsunami, not vice versa. The shifting has caused a ripple effect through the core of the Earth that will continue to manifest itself in future events.
From what I have perceived from my spiritual experiences lately, the shifting of the earth's axis is more directly related to the spiritual, not the scientific. The fate of the world is in the arms of Jesus and the weight of all the sin in the world has become too unbearable even for the arms of Jesus to bear. It is not the fictitious and mythical Atlas who is carrying the weight of the world. It is the Son of God the Creator, the Redeemer who has shrugged from the weight of the world's sin. Understand, therefore, that the coming chastisements are the result of the world's bad behavior and not the result of a punishing and vindictive God and Creator. We have reaped what we have sown.
