"Be prepared, My children, make ready."
THREATS AND SIGNS
Our Lord says:
“Saint Michael runs across France out to its boundaries. Foreign power, keep quiet, do not come over; I bring your steps to a stand. I will confound you when you will be ready to set your foot upon the land of France.
“Come out, chastisements, enclosed like behind a barrier. Come out, rainfall of fire, thunder and flames! Fire-hail, proceed to the earth to harvest the enemies of My Sacred Heart; scatter fright and consternation all over. I want to destroy wickedness. I want to depopulate France and I will restock her over again.
“… be prepared, My children, make ready. At any moment, expect that terrible hour. I will protect you.” (January 9, 1878)
Reflection on this prophecy:
This brief prophecy is like a magnifying glass, bringing into sharp focus a specific order for three future events. (The Sacred Heart of Jesus is speaking to Marie-Julie Jahenny).
First, there will be a “foreign power” which will attempt to invade France, but who will not be permitted to do so.
Then the “rainfall of fire, thunder, and flames” will fall upon earth. It will “scatter fright and consternation all over” in an attempt to “destroy wickedness” and “depopulate France” of the enemies of Christ and His Church.
And lastly, the Sacred Heart of Jesus reveals that this destruction of the wicked is to free the fervent souls who are His friends. The Faithful have a future in France, for Christ will bring these souls to “restock [France] over again.”
We are to expect “that terrible hour” but not be frightened of it, for we have this promise from the Sacred Heart: “I will protect you.”
But He also tells us, “be prepared, My children, make ready. At any moment, expect that terrible hour.”
