Because you fail to pray from your heart, nor do you seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you read the Scripture passages and My Motherís messages and sift their eternal meaning with finite intelligence. This is why there is confusion, anxiety, even disagreement among My little ones, who accuse My messengers of being Ďfalseí, because the meanings do not measure up to what you want the messages to mean.
Hear Me, Jesus Christ, for I do solemnly tell you that all I have revealed in Sacred Scripture and through apparitions of My Mother in this century are to quickly be fulfilled. This will happen through the just hand of the Almighty Father, Who alone knows the hour of the Justice.
As the Triumph of My Holy and Immaculate Mother draws ever closer, there will be distinct chastisements which will befall the world. The first, allowed by Me, will be a series of catastrophic events that will include great earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods. Cities will be wiped from the earth, and the loss of life shall be very great. Even after such loss, my children will not convert their hearts. Rather, blinded by satan, they shall turn to him, to the antichrist as their savior. Thus, the second chastisement shall come and this will also be from Me. This second one will be fire from heaven, which will annihilate the majority of those major cities still remaining after the first chastisement. But again, despite signs of M Mercy, My Love, My Presence among you, the majority of My children shall seek their salvation not in and from Me, but from My enemy, the great deceiver - satan. In all this time the world shall experience an eve-deepening darkness of soul.
Because you will choose the antichrist and deny Me, the light and life of grace in your soul shall grow dim; in many souls it will be extinguished. This is The Darkness that Scripture warns of, that My Holy Mother has foretold from LaSalette to the present day. You anticipate only a physical darkness, but of what concern should that be to one who is united to Me?
No, I solemnly tell you that the Great Darkness is the darkness of the soul, which shall fulfill fully the Third Secret of Fatima. This shall be when the antichristís reign is full, when apostasy and schism have split My One True Church, causing My faithful remnant to be persecuted, so that many will give their life for the True Faith, while others shall form the underground church wherein the True Faith will be preserved. This is truly a period of great faith, hope and love, My children, so grow strong daily in your faith.
Then, as the moment of My Motherís Immaculate Heartís Triumph, the antichrist, who rules the world, shall reveal himself for who he is. His evilness, which you cannot comprehend, will be made fully visible, and being under his power (that is, in his darkness, deprived of My Light which is Life), the vast majority of his victims will die from the sheer horror of his visage. Then shall My Motherís Heart Triumph and My Sacred Heart shall reign.
Do not, My little ones, be concerned for your bodily welfare. You must seek the care of your immortal soul above all else. Come and be reconciled to Me in the Sacrament of Penance. Come and go to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and therein receive My True Presence in the Blessed Sacrament with all reverence.
Pray much and pray from the heart, or else you will not be able to remain in My True Light, for grace shall be siphoned from your soul by the wiles of the evil one.
Pray the Rosary. Wear My Crucifix and a scapular. Many holy medals are also to be used, but it is your faith in Me that is the power, not the object itself.
Little children, strive every day to be in union with My Holy Will so, being tested and purified, you shall have My Light and shall not see the face of satan at the height of The Great Darkness.
I repeat. Return all reverence to Me in the Blessed Sacrament. Let My consecrated religious and priests return to the full purity of their vocation, being clothed as true nuns, priests, brothers and monks. I desire religious life to be fully reformed and for this reform to being in all contemplative, cloistered orders and for My consecrated ones to be, as it were, the heart of all religious life which is then called to active service.
Let every knee bend at the sound of My Most Holy Name. Let the Divine Praises be sung at all times, for as you meditate on these words you shall know they are from Me, Jesus Christ, and I tell you these things because I Come! Peace. Heed My call and trust in Me! I will not abandon anyone who seeks Me with a humble and contrite heart!
