Humanity has arrived in the ‘last times’. The serious words of Maria Valtorta that need our attention, and also a reflection….”You will also hear talk about wars and rumors of wars and they will say to you: “They are the signs of the end”.
Take care that no one seduces you in the future. I am the Christ and there will be no other Christs. Therefore, when many will come to tell you: “I am the Christ” and will seduce many, you do not believe those words, not even if they will be accompanied by prodigies. Satan, father of lies and protector of the liars, helps his servants and followers with false prodigies, which however can be recognized as not good because they are always united with fear, upset and lies . You know the wonders of God: they give holy peace, joy, health, faith, they lead to holy desires and works . The others do not. Therefore reflect on the form and the consequences of the wonders that you can see in the future by the false Christs and by all those who will disguise themselves in the guise of saviors of peoples and instead they will be the beasts that ruin them.
You will also hear, and you will also see, talk about wars and rumors of wars and they will say to you: “They are the signs of the end”. Don’t get upset. It will not be the end. All this must happen before the end, but it will not be the end yet. People will rise against the people, kingdom against kingdom, nation against nation, continent against continent, and pestilences, famines, earthquakes will follow in many places. But this will only be the principle of pain. Then they will throw you into tribulation and kill you, accusing you of being the culprits of their suffering and hoping to get out of it by persecuting and destroying my servants.
Men are always accusing innocents of being the cause of the evil that they, sinners, create. They accuse God himself, perfect innocence and supreme goodness, of being the cause of their suffering, and so they will do with you, and you will be hated because of my name. And Satan who incites them. And many will be scandalized and betrayed and hate each other. It is still Satan who incites them. And false prophets will arise who will lead many into error. Still, Satan will be the true author of so much evil. And for the multiplication of iniquity, charity will grow in many. But whoever persevered to the end will be saved. And first this Gospel of the Kingdom of God must be preached throughout the world, a witness to all nations. Then the end will come. Return to the Christ of Israel who welcomes him and preaches my Doctrine all over the world.
And then another sign. A sign for the end of the Temple and for the end of the world. When you see the abomination of the desolation predicted by Daniel – whoever listens to me well will understand, and whoever reads the Prophet will know how to read between words – then whoever is in Judea will flee to the mountains, whoever is on the terrace does not come down to take what he has at home, and whoever is in his field does not return to the house to take his cloak, but flees without turning back, so as not to happen to him that he can no longer do it, nor does he turn to flee to look, so as not to keep the horrendous spectacle in his heart and insanity for it. Woe to the pregnant and those who are breastfeeding in those days! And woe if the escape were to take place on a Saturday! The escape would not be enough to save oneself without sinning. Pray therefore why it does not happen in winter and on the Sabbath day, because then the tribulation will be great which never was from the beginning of the world until now, nor will it ever be like because it will be the end. If those days were not shortened in the grace of the elect, no one would be saved, because the satan-men will be allied in hell to torment men.
And even then, those who remain faithful to the Lord will rise up to bribe and get out of the right way: “Christ is there, Christ is here.” And in that place. There he is”. Don’t believe it. No one believes, because false Christs and false prophets will arise who will perform wonders and portents such as to mislead even the elect, if it were possible, and will say seemingly comfortable and good doctrines to seduce even the best, if with them it were not Spirit of God that will enlighten them truth and the satanic origin of such prodigies and doctrines. I tell you. I preach to you so you can adjust. But fear not to fall. If you stay in the Lord, you will not be tempted into ruin. Remember what I told you: “I gave you the power to walk on serpents and scorpions, and nothing will harm you of the whole power of the Enemy, because everything will be subject to you”. I remind you, however, that to obtain this you must have God in you, and you must rejoice, not because you dominate the powers of Evil and the poisonous things, but because your name is written in Heaven. You are in the Lord and in his truth. I am the Truth and I teach the truth. Therefore again I repeat to you: whatever they tell you about Me, do not believe. I alone told the truth. I only tell you that Christ will come, but when the end will come. Therefore, if they say to you: “It is in the desert”, do not go. If they say to you, “And in that house,” don’t listen. Because the Son of man in his second coming will be similar to the lightning coming out of the east and flickering up to you, in a shorter time than is the blink of an eyelid. And it will flow over the great Body, immediately made a Corpse, followed by its resplendent angels, and will judge. Wherever the body will be, eagles will gather there. And immediately after the tribulation of those last days, which was told to you – I already speak of the end of time and the world and of the resurrection of the bones, what things the prophets speak – the sun will darken, and the moon will give more light, and the stars of the sky will fall like berries from a bunch too mature that a wind of storm shakes, and the powers of Heaven will tremble.
And then the sign of the Son of man will appear in the dark firmament, and all the nations of the Earth will weep, and men will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with great power and glory. And he will command his angels to reap and to harvest, and to separate the wolves from the wheat and to throw the grapes into the vat, because the great harvest time of the seed of Adam will have come, and there will be no more need to preserve reaping or seed, because there will never be more perpetuation of the human species on the dead Earth. And he will command his angels to loudly ring for the trumpets to gather the elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other, to be at the side of the divine Judge to judge with him the last living and the resurrected.
From the fig tree you learn the similarity: when you see that his ego becomes tender and leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things, know that the Christ is about to come. In truth I tell you: this generation that does not want me will pass before all this happens.
My word does not fall. What I say will be. The heart and thought of men can change, but my word does not change. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. As for the day and the hour, no one knows them, not even the angels of the Lord, but only the Father knows them.
As in the days of Noah, this will happen at the coming of the Son of man. In the days before the flood, the men ate, drank, got married, settled down, without thinking about the sign until the day Noah entered the ark and the cataracts of the heavens opened and the flood submerged every living thing and everything. Even so it will be for the coming of the Son of man. Then two men will be brought into the field, and one will be taken and one will be left, and two women will be intent on making the wheel go, and one will be taken and one left, by the enemies in the Fatherland and even more by the angels separating the good seed from chaff, and will not have time to prepare for the judgment of Christ.
So keep watch because you don’t know what time your Lord will come. Think back to this: if the head of the family knew what time the thief came, he would watch over and not let his house be undressed. So keep watch and pray, being always prepared for the coming, without your hearts falling into torpor, out of abuse and intemperance of every species, and your spirits are made distracted and dull to the things of Heaven by excessive care for the things of the Earth, and the snare of death does not catch you suddenly when you are unprepared. Because, remember, you all have to die. All men, born as they are, must die, and it is a single coming of Christ this death and this subsequent judgment, which will have its universal repetition at the solemn coming of the Son of man.
What will be of that faithful and prudent servant, appointed by the master to administer food to the servants in his absence? Blessed fate he will have if his master, returning suddenly finds him doing what he must with diligence, justice and love. In truth I tell you that he will say to him: “Come, good and faithful servant. You deserved my prize. Here, manage all my assets “. But if he seemed, and was not, good and faithful, and in his interior he was as bad as the outside he was hypocritical, and when the master left he would say in his heart: “The master will be late to come back! Let’s give ourselves to the good weather “and will begin to beat and beat the preserves, making us wear up in the food and in everything else to have more money to be consumed with the gozzoviglie and drunkards, what will happen? That the master will return suddenly, when the servant does not think so, and his evil will be discovered, he will be removed from his place and arus, and he will be thrown out where justice wants. And there he will be.
And so of the unrepentant sinner, who does not think like you can be near and near his judgment, and enjoys and abuses saying: “Then I will repent.” In truth I tell you that he will not have time to do it and he will be condemned to stay forever in the place of the terrible horror, where he is only blasphemy and crying and torture, and he will come out of it only for the Final Judgment, when he will clothe the resurrected flesh to present himself complete at the Last Judgment as complete he sinned in the time of earthly life, and with body and soul he will present himself to Judge Jesus whom he did not want for Savior. All there welcomed before the Son of man. An infinite multitude of bodies, returned from the earth and the sea and recomposed after having been ash for so long. And the spirits in the bodies. To each flesh returned to the skeletons will correspond its own spirit, the one that once animated it. And they will stand before the Son of man, splendid in his divine Majesty, seated on the throne of his glory supported by his angels.
He will separate men from men, putting the good on one side and the bad on the other, like a shepherd separating the sheep from the kids, and putting his sheep on the right and the goats on the left. And he will say with sweet voice and benign appearance to those who, peaceful and beautiful of a glorious beauty in the splendor of the holy body, will look at him with all the love of their heart: “Come, blessed by my Father, take possession of the prepared Kingdom for you from the origin of the world. Because I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was a pilgrim and you gave me hospitality, I was naked and you dressed me, sick and you visited me, a prisoner and you came to bring me comfort “.
And the righteous will ask him: “When did we ever, Lord, see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink?” When did we ever see you as a pilgrim and we welcomed you, naked and dressed you? When did we see you sick and in prison and come to visit you? ”.
The King of kings will tell them: “Truly, I say to you, when you did these things to one of these least of my brothers, then you did it to Me.”
And then he will turn to those who will be on his left and tell them, sternly in his face, and his looks will be like lightning bolts of the reprobate, and in his voice will thunder the wrath of God: “Get out of here!” Get away from Me, oh damn you! In the eternal fire prepared by the fury of God for the demon and the tenebrous angels and for those who have heard them in their voices of triple and obscene lust. I was hungry and did not feed me, thirsty and did not quench my thirst, I was naked and did not clothe me, pilgrim and I repelled, sick and imprisoned and did not visit me. Because you had only one law: the pleasure of your self ”.
And they will say to him: “When did we see you hungry, thirsty, naked, pilgrim, sick, in prison? In truth we have not known you. We were not, when You were on Earth “.
And He will answer them: “It is true. You haven’t met me. Because you weren’t when I was on Earth. But you have, however, known my Word and you have had the poor among you, the hungry, the sad, the naked, the sick, the prisoners. Why didn’t you do to them what you might have done to Me? Because it is not already said that those who had me among them were merciful with the Son of man. Do you not know that in my brothers I am, and there is one of them who suffers there is I, and that what you did not do to one of these my minor brothers you denied Me, Firstborn of men? Go and burn in your selfishness. Go, and I charm you the darkness and the frost because you were darkness and frost, even knowing where was the Light and the Fire of Love “.
And they will go to the eternal torture, while the righteous will enter into eternal life.
These are the things to come …
