#374 – RETIRE FROM THIS WORLD, PART 1
"Whosoever therefore will be a friend of this world, becometh an enemy of God.” – St. James 4:4
THIS WORLD THAT HAS TURNED TO SATAN
"Pray a constant vigil of prayer now. Keep your Rosary with you always. Retire from this world that has turned to satan. Save the souls of those you can gather in the few days left to you, the souls of those you love. Save your soul." - Our Lady, August 21, 1971
RETIRE FROM THE EVIL INDUCEMENTS
"There are many trials ahead for your country now. Unless you retire from the evil inducements of the world outside, and devote your time to living within your spirit, and fortify your life with prayer and sacrifice, you will not remain under My mantle of protection.
"I am your Mother of Grace. I am the Mediatrix of all graces, and My graces and My Son's graces are to be given freely to all those who will believe. Believe, My children, just believe, and you will be given the way." - Our Lady, December 24, 1971
A WORLD THAT IS NOW THE KINGDOM OF SATAN
"I repeat again, live every earthly day in the spirit. At this moment I cannot divulge the full plan of the Father. Prepare! Prepare! Retire from a world that is now the kingdom of satan. Gather your loved ones about you. Protect them with a vigil of prayer, the Rosary.
"You are not alone in the battle. We send all the graces necessary for your salvation. Redemption! Grace! Peace! All for the asking. The power of God reaches out to prayer." - Our Lady, November 1, 1970
PLAYGROUND OF SATAN
"Children of darkness, come out of your darkness. You are in error. Corruption has entered into the hearts of the holy men of God. The teachers of the children have gone astray. The parents have set an example for their children's destruction. Woe to evil man who continues in his corruption and refuses to listen to the admonitions from Heaven.
"A heavy hand will be placed upon you all. The penance will be severe. Your souls will be cleansed by trial. All will retire from the world that has fast become the playground of satan." - Our Lady, October 2, 1972
"SACRIFICE NOW FOR MY SON"
"All the prophecies must come to pass. But the extent will depend on man's repentance. All messages given in prophecy from the sacred grounds must be carried forth. However, this can be lessened in degree to you. All is on man's decision.
"The Father is not an ogre, My children. He is not one to punish. He will do this only to bring you back to Us.
"Retire from this world of satan. Wear your sacramentals, and have great hopes that one day the trials will be over. As you choose your side, be sure that you do not take the wide road which leads to your damnation.
"Make your choice now, for your time is very limited. Sacrifice now for My Son, and you will receive the greatest of rewards. You cannot have both. You will not be rich on this earth and store up your riches in Heaven. You must be poor on this earth, and therefore gather your graces for Heaven.
"I am not stating that all should discard their earthly living, My children. Man must work for his daily bread. But I do say you will not lose your souls for the desire of riches and your body pamperings. Your body is but a shell for the spirit, and your spirit is eternal. Remember this!" - Our Lady, August 14, 1972
DO MUCH PENANCE IN THE TIME LEFT TO YOU
"Man holds the balance for his own chastisement. The sins of the flesh are sending many into the abyss.
"You must turn away from the ways of the world, the ways of materialism, My children, for you are going fast into darkness of the spirit. You must reject the light set forth by satan to ensnare you and capture your eternal soul. You must now retire from your world, earth, and do much penance in the time left to you.
"A great Warning shall be set upon mankind and then the ultimate Chastisement, for many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption.
"It grieves My heart much to watch the manner in which man has rejected My Mother upon earth. I have sent Her to you as your Mother, as My Mother, the Queen of Heaven and earth, to direct you in your battle against the forces of evil. Without Her guidance you will not stay on the road to Heaven." - Jesus, June 18, 1975
ALL MUST CARRY THEIR CROSSES TO GAIN THE
"You must not question the ways of the Eternal Father. You will accept all without question, My child. Pray more and retire from your world.
"Before the coming of My Son, My child, many martyrs will be among you. It is the will of the Father, the Eternal Father in Heaven, that all must carry their crosses to gain the Kingdom.
"Many abominations are being committed now in My Son's houses throughout the world, My children.
"I have wandered throughout your world, crying bitter tears of remorse for the punishment that will come to mankind. I do not come to bring fear to your hearts, but to admonish you, as your Mother, to prepare for what is to come upon your world." - Our Lady, November 22, 1975
"DISCIPLINE MUST BE RETURNED TO THE
"Many of our brothers of the orders have given themselves to worldly living, My child. They do not know that they have fallen into the snare of satan. The simple life, My child, is the best for the dedicated.
"The dedicated, those who have accepted a vocation, must live only as human beings in the world, but must accept the spiritual.
"Our brothers of the cloth, My child, have rejected the supernatural. They are running fast onto the road to perdition. Pray for them, My child. The simple life of pure dedication and the simple rule is all that can keep them from falling into the abyss.
"Discipline must be returned to the orders. Many must now retire from the world that has been given to satan.
"Know now, my brothers and sisters of religious orders, you will be mocked, you will be scorned, but you will please the Eternal Father and receive your reward in the Kingdom. Shall you trade your eternal life with God the Father for a few short years of plenty upon your earth? Many have sold their souls to get to the head." - St. Francis, May 28, 1975
SISTERS IN THE CONVENTS
"It has been made known to you many times that there are many offenses being committed in the convents. However, our warnings are falling on deafened ears. You try, and I tried in my life on earth, to imitate Our Lady. But now Our Lady cries, for so many are mocking Her. So many are going now down the road to perdition by following the modes of a world that has been given to satan.
"Suffering--so few care to suffer or carry their crosses. It is much easier to accept the ways of the world. But in the final outcome you lose so much.
"My sisters, you must place your skirts down to the floor, for you offend Our Lady, and the Father looks with critical eye upon your actions. You must retire from the world and show by good example. Then many more sisters will enter into the convents if you give them good example.
"All mothers of the houses in the convents must watch who enters their homes, for satan has placed many within the convents to destroy them. Those who enter should not be counted by their intelligence, but by their hearts; for the Father has not chosen those of great intelligence and worldly acclaim to do His will. He knows, and He looks into your hearts. " - St. Theresa, May 30, 1973
RECOGNIZE THE EVILS CREATED FOR YOUR
"You will all read the Book of life. You will not accept the errors being written into the Book of life at the present time.
"I warned many years ago of the state of this world to come, but who listened? You do not have those years now to speculate or to hesitate. You will act now upon My counsel, or you will fall!
"Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice--save yourselves; save your souls and the souls of those you love. And if you have the charity of heart for your brothers, you will offer your sacrifices for their salvation, for many will be lost because they have no one who cares to pray for them. The greatest weapon you have now is prayer; you will use it. Man has many opportunities to make atonement to his God, but he has become involved in a materialistic world.
"You must retire from this world that has been given to satan. Recognize the evils that are created for your downfall: humanism, modernism. They are satanic--creations of satan to place you and blind you to the truth, place you on the road to damnation. For the man of perdition now is loosed upon your world. He roams your world, and he is gathering many agents." - Our Lady, May 30, 1973
"ACT UPON THESE WARNINGS AND RESTORE MY
"My child, in obedience to My Mother you have made great progress in sending the Message from Heaven throughout the world. You must expect to meet with resistance from the enemies of My Church. This opposition, My child, you must not take to heart, for you are succeeding when you bring and flush the enemy out.
"The opposition, My children, will come from those who have given themselves to the world of satan. You must pray a constant vigilance of prayer.
"I admonish My pastors, those who have gathered My flock, My sheep, to take a good look at yourselves. Contemplate in prayer; retire from your world which has been given to satan. You must make your decision now, if you will fulfill your role upon earth as pastors, as leaders of My flock. If not, you will be taken from among them. Your soul in darkness shall continue fast into the abyss.
"Many who have been given the highest honors in My Church have used their positions of leadership to destroy the knowledge of the light from Heaven, to destroy souls by misleading. Errors abound in My House, errors built with motives of self-gain and glory. What will it get you? What do you gain when you destroy your soul?
"I do not have to repeat anew the warnings given to you in the past. You will act upon these warnings and restore My House! I have given you a firm foundation of Faith. What are you building now? Churches of man?
"All that is rotten will fall. A Church in darkness wears a band of death about it!" - Jesus, December 6, 1975
UNLESS MANKIND MAKES A REVERSAL...
"Man has set himself on a road steeping his soul in darkness of spirit. Charity has grown cold. Aberrations of the body are accepted as normal when they are abnormal. Man is practicing all the vile corruption set upon your world by satan! Unless mankind makes a reversal of his present course, there will be no recourse by the Eternal Father than to allow you to use the instruments of destruction you have created to destroy you.
"Pray, My children, a constant vigilance of prayer.
"For countless earth-years, My child, My voice has cried a similar message of prayer, atonement, and sacrifice, to fall upon deafened ears and hardened hearts. Shall you ask for the Father to send the Chastisement upon you? Awaken, My children, from your slumber!
"My child, you must find more time for quiet meditation. Do not be concerned of the opinion of mankind. I have asked My children to retire from this world of yours that has been given to satan." - Our Lady, March 29, 1975
"YOUR WORLD IS IMBALANCED"
"My child, your world is imbalanced. The souls of mankind are imbalanced. The Chastisement is heading for your world. Awaken from your slumber! The sands of time are running fast. Will you be ready?
"Though the world of fallen man and his nature seeks to still the voice of My Mother, this he will not succeed in. The words, the Message of Heaven, shall go throughout the world, and then shall come the end.
"It is not a message of fear that I give you, or My Mother brings to you. It is a message of hope in your world of desolation. Stand fast in your Faith! Retire from your world which is now given to satan. Guard your children well, and We will meet and rejoice in the battle that will be won with the help of My Mother." - Jesus, December 6, 1974
"MANY WILL LEAVE UNPREPARED"
"The path of man has gone far from the path that would lead to the Kingdom. He has now traveled the wide road, and this road has brought him to his own destruction.
"The Father chooses to send upon you first a great manifestation, a Warning. And should you not listen to the voice within you, He will have no recourse but to go forth with the plan for full cleansing. My Son has given you His word; you have received one of the final warnings given to man.
"Therefore, you will count your days as days in which you will retire from the world that has been given to satan. You will save your soul and the souls of those you love. It will mean great denial of your human instincts.
"The number, the number in the Chastisement who will be taken before their atonement and penance, has sent--this knowledge has sent a great knife through My heart. Many will leave unprepared, and therefore, join the kingdom of Lucifer, the prince of darkness.
"The more, My children, you choose to go and live among men, the less you will feel yourself in union with the Father. You must retire within yourself. Gather your families about you in prayer.
"Your children must be protected against the world, your world of evil. Better that they starve their bodies than to starve their souls. The seeking of worldly gain has sent many souls into hell. The example being shown in many homes is abominable. Many parents will pay a hard price in the loss of the Kingdom for their lack of discipline and proper direction of the souls entrusted to them." - Our Lady, May 10, 1973
ETERNAL FATHER IS IN FULL CONTROL
"Many are selling their souls to get to the head. Satan is in My Son's House now. No evil is ever triumphant; however, the Eternal Father permits this trial to mankind and the Church for the separation of the sheep from the goats. In this trial all that is rotten shall fall.
"The children of light shall go forward with great perseverance, knowing that they will carry a heavy cross. For no man shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven unless he picks up his cross and follows My Son. The road shall not be an easy one, My children. It will be filled with thorns amid the roses. However, as you progress in sanctity, you will find, My children, that you will relish this opportunity through suffering to gain graces that may be applied to the salvation of another soul. When many graces are given to a human being much is expected of him.
"The Eternal Father is in full control of what is happening upon earth. As man has been given a free will, in this manner shall he be tried and tested.
"You will all continue to pray a constant vigilance of prayer. Do not listen to the scoffers who will abound about you.
"My children, you must retire from the world that has been given now to satan. Satan has set himself to claim his own, and many are falling fast into hell. The sins of the flesh condemn many to hell." - Our Lady, May 3, 1978
"RETIRE FROM THE WORLD, AND THE FATHER
WILL REWARD YOU"
"All who work for the Father, and though they be laid to rest, will rise in great glory. The reward given to the workers of My Mother are not counted on earthly values. The reward is given by the Father. So do your acts and works in secret. Retire from the world, and the Father will reward you, Who watches also in secret." - Jesus, August 5, 1973
