Punishment Was Written Down
We can find God's Mercy in Christ's Precious Blood and in His Holy Wounds.
As God is outside of time, we can even apply these prayers to those who are already dead.
The Flame of the Holy Ghost says:
“When the divine Messiah showed forth upon earth, it was a real rejoicing and the world was assured of its salvation. The Messiah was bringing with Himself joy, hope, faith, and, above all, that great light which was to enlighten the world and penetrate intelligences.
“But a terrible punishment was then recorded in the unfathomable designs of the Saviour of the world. That punishment was by reason of the blindness of people and of the coldness of confidence in the One who realises all gifts in Heaven and on earth.
“Such will be the explosion of punishment by the Saviour of the world, the approach to terrible misfortunes which will cause everything to suffer.
“Friends of the Lord, pay attention to this word: I do not say one misfortune, but immense pains and sorrows, an unspeakable blending of all kinds of desolations. All of which are very close to touching upon earth, and most of all upon men.
“That terrible punishment, written down by the Saviour of the world, must happen during the years ending the century. The standstill has arrived: the punishment will not be postponed further on. The Lord has allowed the fall into that terrible blindness. Such blindness had to happen to pass, before Heaven and earth, both together, have but one single voice of distress, tears and wailing.
“The punishment will spread out its explosion. Faithful people, any day henceforth, await the Lord’s hour, and also the hour of the earth, because the hour of the earth will be still more formidable than the one of Heaven. Mercy is to be found up above; here, on earth, hatred is un-appeasable and merciless.”
(January 12, 1882)
Reflection on this prophecy:
Almighty God made us to know Him, love, Him, serve Him, and be with Him for all eternity. And this explains why the punishments will come.
Human beings who are caught up by the world lose the sense of the reality of the Divine. They start to forget who is the Creator of Heaven and earth.
This is why the punishment is “by reason of the blindness of people and of the coldness of confidence in the One who realises all gifts in Heaven and on earth.”
God wants to bring humanity back to Him.
There will be an “explosion of punishment by the Saviour of the world.”
The Holy Ghost warns us, through Marie-Julie , that there will come “immense pains and sorrows,” so that we ourselves shall have much, much to suffer.
These events will happen at the same time, in “an unspeakable blending of all kinds of desolations.”
And it is only the timing for these punishments which seems to be the only disputable fact: “That terrible punishment, written down by the Saviour of the world, must happen during the years ending the century.” It seems unlikely that God will wait another eighty years to punish the world of its fetid sins.
Yet we who study prophecy know that God’s Mercy does allow Chastisements to be delayed through penance and prayer.
In fact, Marie-Julie gladly extended her sufferings by many years in order for the Chastisements to be delayed! As a victim soul, the Sacred Heart of Jesus gave her this possibility. She could have died much sooner, but instead, she chose to suffer for many more years so as to delay these punishments. Marie-Julie died at 97 years of age, in 1947.
And she had been suffering since she was 19 years old!
But even Marie-Julie’s truly heroic efforts could not stop the Chastisements from coming to us, and so God’s Punishment “will spread out its explosion.”
For us, the warning is direct and simply worded: “Faithful people, any day henceforth, await the Lord’s hour.”
These sufferings are to come at the hands of those wicked men who have always been the sworn enemies of Holy Mother Church, because She is Christ’s Church: “here, on earth, hatred is un-appeasable and merciless.”
Remember, at the heart of all events here on earth, there is the rebellious war of satan and his fallen angels against the reign of God Himself.
We must pray for the grace of final perseverance, because “Mercy is to be found up above.”
