The coming Isolation and Desolation

light in the darkness

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5

We have entered into a time of chaos and lawlessness.  Hatred and vitriol are everywhere.  Terror is starting to reign.  Everyone is blaming everyone else.  I know we all fear.  People may decide to stay in their homes, and not go out, for fear of the hatred in the world.  But hiding brings isolation.  Isolation brings desolation.  There is nothing the devil wants more than to bring this desolation to your soul.  Many have already begun feeling desolation.  Trapped in sin of wrath, pornography, addiction, adultery and envy.  Now we have added violence to the mix, a quickening of the isolation.   We are fighting powers and principalities.

For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Ephesians 6:12

But what does Christ compel us to do?  He compels us to look at our own soul, to pull the planks out of eyes, and to let him take on our desolation.  He clothes us in righteousness. Shame can be lifted, but only when you recognize your own sins.  If we recognize this truth, repent of our own sins, and are clothed in the love of the Lord we will not feel alone.

I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5

And when we recognize our sins, repent of them and clothe ourselves with Christ, we can go out.  We can spread love to our neighbor.  We can change the hate.  Pray to your guardian angel to reveal to you those who mean you harm, and those who do not.  Share what you have with others.  Reach out to others in need.  And if there comes a time when hope becomes an act of the will, then ask God to replace your will with His.  If we give mercy to others, mercy is given to us. Remain in truth and love.

Therefore, since we have this ministry through the mercy shown us, we are not discouraged.
Rather, we have renounced shameful, hidden things; not acting deceitfully or falsifying the word of God, but by the open declaration of the truth we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.  2 Corinthians 4:1-2

Recognize the Gospel, because it brings life.  Love of this world, of pleasures, of materialism, of status, brings death.  The god of this world is Satan.  Do not fall prey to his divisiveness.

And even though our gospel is veiled, it is veiled for those who are perishing,
in whose case the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that they may not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  He brings unity of man.  When we walk away from Him we see division.  Be a light in the dark world.

 For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your slaves for the sake of Jesus.  For God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to bring to light the knowledge of the glory of God on the face of [Jesus] Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:5-6

And most important.  Do not be afraid.  Our kingdom is not of this world.  It is more important now than ever to walk in the love of Christ and fear not.  For nothing is impossible with God.  Recognize that sometimes what looks like a suffering can actually  be a mercy.  We may lose our comforts but we will not lose the love of God.

Even though I walk through valley of the shadow of death, 
I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Psalm 23:4

And pray without ceasing.  Prayer is how we put on the Armor of God.

    Thank you for reminding me who I belong to and not to fear or despair.

  2. Theresa says:

    Thank you for this post. Today, the 20th, I said to God, no, I’m not going out. I’m weary of the world, my heart is saddened and so tired. But I knew I had to go to Mass. As weary and tired as my body and soul were, I did go, was refreshed, met hell shortly thereafter, but the Angel of Sandpoint reminded me as I was leaving Sandpoint to head home that I didn’t pray for those people I encountered afterwards who were angry and abusive. I was humbled, and I prayed for them. I may still be weary, but I have hope in the Lord. My hope is in the coming of the Lord…quickly, please…!

    I meditate on the passion of Christ and say:
    The Agony in the Garden: I (my sins) caused this and Sustill He loves me
    The Scourging at the Pillar: I caused this yet He still loves me
    The Crowning of thorns: I placed it on His head and still he loves me
    The Carrying of the Cross: I placed that heavy wood on His bleeding aching shoulders and still He loves me
    The Crucifixtion: I hammered those nails and still He loves me
    Thank you my sweet Lord for loving this sinner

    Wonderful article, thank you!

    I want to wholeheartedly change, so I can be on God’s team. I see a grand canyon of my sinfulness between me and the Lord. So, I can only work this out in fear and trembling. Not get discouraged about my sins, but by just keep on keepin’ on. Nose to the grindstone.

    It occurred to me today that one small change I can DO, is to say: “God Bless You!” to anyone I encounter in the public sphere, while I’m out and about running errands and such. I said it to the young men working at the checkout at a local IGA. Their necks snapped back and the look on their faces was that of thirsty people in a desert who finally see a well. That made me decide that I need to do this and not be afraid. I pray to God I may remain steadfast to my new resolution.

    God Bless you & All!

      About 7 years ago, I too, decided to say God Bless you to all who I encounter ,cashiers, desk clerks, service people, waiters ect…and I must say now it flows right from my heart each and every time. In all these years, there have been only a very scant few times when I have been rebuffed. Overwhelmingly people do exactly as u say….they are soooo grateful! They thank Me and most say “God bless you “right back to me. Some say, “I really needed that” and a few have teared up!
      So let’s continue to give our Creator glory by asking His blessing on His Creatures!

      Loved reading about St. Faustina ‘s vision…so edifying. ..GOD BLESS US ALL😃

    From Prophecies of Ven. Elena Aiello
    Our Blessed Mother speaks: “The world today is honoring me, but my Motherly Heart is bleeding, because the enemy is at our doors! Men are offending God too much! If I were to show you the number of sins committed in a single day, you would die of horror and sorrow! The sins that distress God the most, are those of the souls who should perfume the air with the fragrance of their virtues. Instead, they contaminate (by their sinful lives) those who come near them.”

    “The times are grievous. The whole world is in turmoil, because IT HAS BECOME WORSE THAN AT THE TIME OF THE DELUGE!”
    “Everything is in suspense, like a thread; when this thread breaks, the justice of God will fall like a thunderbolt and will complete its terrible course of purification.”
    Sister Elena asked, “What will become of Italy?”
    The Virgin Mary answered: “Italy, my daughter, will be humiliated, purified in blood, and must suffer much, because many are the sins of this beloved country, seat of the Vicar of Christ. You cannot imagine what will happen! In those sad days there will be much anguish and weeping. There will be a great revolution, and streets will be red with blood.”

    “The Pope will suffer much, and all this suffering will be like an agony, which will shorten his earthly pilgrimage. His successor will guide the boat in the tempest.”

    “However the punishment of the impious will not be delayed. That day will be most fearful in the world! The earth will tremble, all humanity will be shaken! The wicked and the obstinate will perish in the tremendous severity of the justice of the Lord.”
    “Launch at once a message into the world, to advise men to return to God by prayers and penances, and to come with confidence to my Immaculate Heart. My power must be shown, because I am the Mother of God, of the just, and of sinners. Through prayer and penance, my mercy will be able to hold back the hand of God’s justice.”
    Below from Gladys Herminia Quiroga de Motta, San Nicolàs de los Arroyos 199?
    Many are the children who know and venerate the Mother. Many more are those that do not know her. Today it is time to listen to her and to know her because the one that despises her despises Christ and is hurting himself. Nobody has doubts, love does not have misfortune. The one that loves Christ also loves His Mother. Praised be the Lord. That all may know my message.
    I am the anchor, I have anchored here. I am the coffer that wants to take the children to the Lord.
    At the present time, all mankind is pending by a thread. If that thread is broken, many will be those that do not have salvation, for that reason I call you to the reflection, hurry up that we are running out of time, there will be no place for late comers. The Lord wants all to enjoy His kingdom. To those that are remote, I say to them: approach, Jesus Christ is within reach of your hand.
    The coming of the Lord is imminent, and as they say in the Scriptures nobody knows the day nor the hour, but it will be; and certainly for that hour the soul of the Christian must be prepared. Even the stones will know of Him.

    could the date be corrected for: Gladys Herminia Quiroga de Motta, San Nicolàs de los Arroyos 199? …it probably should read “1999”

    There is hope. When the Warning takes place in 2016, revealed in the book, “AfterTheWarning2016”, then we will know where we are at.

    “…be a light in a dark world.”


  13. VEIL OF TRUTH.. says:

    We are about to see the veil lifted as never before. Mankind will be shaken to the core. Our Lord Jesus Christ is not going to tarry much longer. Sin and disgrace abound. The church like those around it have been threatened with fear of rebuke thus silenced with intimidation. Our Lady has cried out for change of heart and mind yet only a remnant has obliged. Shaking will now begin and accelerate until the hearts of mankind in fear repent and acknowledge justice and salvation as given to us by the King of Kings. Many will be cast into the lake of fire, many will be shaken to their core before they realize (many too late) their errors and misdeeds..
    Pray , pray pray dear saints. Our only way to peace.
