#560 - Luxury

“Lay not up to yourselves treasures on earth: where the rust, and moth consume, and where thieves break through, and steal. But lay up to yourselves treasures in heaven: where neither the rust nor moth doth consume, and where thieves do not break through, nor steal.” – St. Matthew 6:19-20

"Our hearts are greatly saddened by the evils and abomina­tions being committed in the houses of God throughout the world. Man has given himself to all pleasures of the flesh. Luxury in your country, My children, has been your downfall, for you have forgotten your God and you have starved your soul.
    "The Eternal Father is most merciful, My children, and He will chastise those He loves. There is great value in suffering. Many will carry heavy crosses, My children, in the days ahead.
    "In the city of Rome, the light is dim. The battle con­tinues, the battle of the spirits. The sheep are being separated from the goats by the Eternal Father. In the end all that is rot­ten will have fallen." - Our Lady, December 6, 1975

"You will not be free from the disasters visited elsewhere. You will not learn a lesson until the destruction falls upon you. Your country will no longer remain intact in the face of destruction.
    "Your excessive luxury has weakened your souls. The Eternal Father needed less provocation when He finished arrogant man in his world of sin. Your evil has become far greater than the past sins of man." - Our Lady, July 15, 1971

"My children, you are now on the verge of a great disaster. Pray as you have never prayed before! I need not stress again what I have been crying throughout the world, coming to you with the plan for your salvation. How many have listened to My pleas? How many have turned away from My cries?
    "We do not bring upon you willful disaster. No! We allow you to bring your own destruction. We have held back what you so rightly deserve for many earth-years. But now you have grown fat on your luxury and starved your souls.
    "You will not escape the trials given in the past to your fellow men. You will not be free from the Chastisement.
    "Woe, woe, I say to you, for you have turned your back on the cross of My Son to worship the mores of evil man." - Our Lady, November 1, 1971

"My child and My children, how many words have been given to mankind by warnings from the Queen of Heaven--warnings that have gone unheeded! The hearts of mankind have been hardened. Luxury upon luxury have entered their lives and have starved their spirits.
    "The warnings from Heaven have been given throughout your world. The time of times and the day approaches when mankind shall be forced and separated. The sheep and the goats shall stand apart.
    "I have given a warning in general to mankind. I have sent My voice throughout your world summoning before Me those in com­mand of My sheep: shepherds that have gone astray, shepherds that have set themselves in the place above the Eternal Father, shepherds that have scattered Our flock. You have been given in time eter­nal the truth of your Faith. You shall not change this, making a religion upon earth that is based on the fallen nature of mankind!
     "I watch your earth. I tremor for what you are asking as a just punishment for your actions! The Father chastises those He loves. Your world will be bathed with blood. Shall you accept the Blood of the Lamb, or shall you receive the sword? The choice is yours." - Jesus, November 20, 1975

"In the ultimate Chastisement, houses will blow in the wind; skin will dry up and blow off the bones as if it had never been. Many eyes will see and still not believe, so hardened are the hearts now in sin.
    "Your country, as a leader for the world, is setting itself in for greater chastisement. And why? Because of your example! Your luxury has been your downfall; your pride has been your downfall; and the Eternal Father has allowed you, in your sin, to continue fast upon your way so that you will reach satan, the prince of darkness, whom you have chosen to give yourself to!
    "This darkness has entered not only upon My Church but into the hearts and the very homes, the life pattern of My children. Awaken from your slumber; look about you and recognize the signs of your times.
    "Do not, O pastors, in your pride, think that you shall not fall under judgment. Oh, no! Your judgment will be far greater. For those who receive much, much is expected of them." - Jesus, May 29, 1976

"My Mother's words and the words of the Eternal Father will have gone throughout the world, and then you will be planet struck. All this depends now on your atonement, sacrifices, and your turning back from your evil ways. We are merciful. We do not wish to visit evil upon you. We say 'evil' because anything that hurts Our hearts cuts deeply. We love all Our children, and We do not wish to see one lost to Us. But many times, My children, We will be forced to bring you back through suffering.
   "We have given you in your country many graces. You are bountiful with luxury. You have grown fat on your luxuries, but this has not fed your souls. They are starved for the light. You wander in deep darkness. You search, but what are you searching for, My children? You reach out and what do you find? Satan!
    "Already religions of evil are spreading throughout your land, creations of satan. What of your children? Are they visiting these temples of satan? As a parent have you warned them of the trap that is being set for them? No! You are too busy living your luxurious lives, pleasure seeking, filling your stomachs, pampering your bodies. To what avail do you do this? Your time upon earth is so short! What do you gain?
     "Unless you become disciplined and seek the things of your God, you will be destroyed, physically and spiritually. In the final outcome We will separate the sheep and the goats. You will all have been given your choice." - Jesus, April 10, 1972

"Many upon earth, My children, have given themselves over to lives of luxury and sinful pursuits. Unless they turn back while there is time they will lose all of the opportunity to recover the graces needed for their redemption. Redemption, grace, and peace.
    "A cleansing, a gradual cleansing of the earth shall soon start. My children, are you ready now? Have you prepared your household? Do you safeguard your children with the sacramentals given to you? Or has the enemy come to you with derision, and calling you a fanatic, have you taken them from about you? Your protection then is gone and you can be lost!
    "Do not be deluded by those agents of hell, or those who have been unwittingly and unsuspectingly become enmeshed with the agents of hell. They will come to you with all seeming good intentions. But remember, My children, that the road to hell is often paved with good intentions. I say unto you now as your Mother, as a Mediatrix between God and man, the Commandments of the Eternal Father must be followed. If you break one you break them all!" - Our Lady, June 9, 1979

"My children of light, My Mother will continue to be with you in the days ahead. Yes, Her voice has cried out in supplication to the Eternal Father for a continued reprieve for mankind from the Warning and the great Chastisement. However, many warnings have been given in the past to awaken mankind from its slumber, as man is plunging fast to his own destruction.
    "Sin in your country and in many countries throughout the world has become a way of life. In the history of a fallen nation you will always find it is preceded by a fall into immorality and sin. For a nation that has been given plenty, it has been used now, this excess in luxury, to destroy souls.
    "The Faith is being attacked in My House upon earth, My Church, and many of My clergy are falling into the plan with the octopus, the great world powers that seek to gather all nations into a rule of a one-world government and a one-world religion based on humanism and modernism. However, this shall not be set in motion to a conclusion with the loss of souls. This shall not be set in motion because the Eternal Father will send a Warning to mankind, a great Warning of such magnitude that very few will doubt that it comes from the Eternal Father and is not man-made." - Jesus, July 25, 1978

"Do you, My children, truly know the meaning of love and practice it in your daily life? Or have your lives been given over to luxury and seeking pleasures of the flesh? Selfishness abounding in the hearts of many, and even in the hearts of the clergy. The corporal acts of mercy must be practiced by the clergy in My Son's House.
    "My Son has sent Me to you, through the Father and the Spirit of life, as a Mediatrix between God and man, to direct you and counsel you, that you may understand the knowledge given in the Book of love and life, your Bible. For many who read, they are just words, not to be practiced in the daily lives of many.
    "My children, without charity you have nothing! Does holiness reign, and charity, in the hearts of the clergy in My Son's House? Or shall I give to you the measure of offenses by count as My Son suffers for these offenses by count? For when you do not clothe your brother in his nakedness, when you do not feed your brother in his hunger, when you do not comfort him in his affliction, you offend the Father in Heaven and the Trinity; for even the most humble and smallest among you, as human beings upon earth, are the children of your God, and each and every man, woman, and child has been created in the image of God. But now you have given yourselves over to seeking worldly pleasures; you have given yourselves over to the worship of Lucifer and false gods. And then you cry to Heaven: 'Where are my children? Why have my children turned against us?' Parents, leaders in the houses of religion upon earth, have you followed your vocation? What measure of responsibility shall you be counted for in the fall of your nation?" - Our Lady, September 7, 1979

"My child and My children, how long can I go about your earth going from place to place, hinder and yon, as your Mother, praying with you, solacing the nations that suffer from their own laxity. We ask for prayer, atonement, and sacrifice. And what do We get? We have theologians who now consider themselves as gods upon earth. They are setting up a new world religion, a one-world religion based on humanism and modernism. This will not continue much longer, My children. It has taken many earth-years to develop these theories. And those who have their heads in the clouds, though they wear the purple hats and the red hats, those who have become blinded from the excessive love of luxury and materialism, shall be lost in the chaos.
    "Each and every soul shall be held accountable for his soul and the souls of those about him. Families are disintegrating. I must tell you now, My children, the family must be returned to the holy state it was constructed for. We shall never approve nor accept marriage and cohabitation without marriage. We shall not accept the annulments that are being given now to so many without due cause." - Our Lady, September 27, 1986

"Women of the world, you have chosen to become murderers, killing your young. You defy the Eternal Father in your quest for luxury and pleasure. You have cast aside your role as women and have aligned yourselves with homosexuality and lesbianism, and as such you corrupt the young. Woe to a generation that has made sin a way of life." - Our Lady, June 1, 1978

"All clergy, cardinals, bishops, parish priests, and laymen shall be accountable for the fall of all souls within their self-imposed dedication of protection, which has been cast aside, as many have been blinded by a life of too much luxury and ease.
    "As I told you in the past, through prophets and the word, that it will be easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter Heaven. For his richness has been directed from satan for the destruction of his soul.
    "Charity is known to few. Charitable people are few, My child and My children. Blessed are the poor and the peacemakers, for they shall be truly called children of God." - Jesus, June 13, 1981

"As a nation, as a country--to all nations of the world, I say to you, as your Mother, that as you have sown so shall you reap. How many years have I traveled across your earth, crying with tears of pity and frustration, that the great Chastisement be withheld from mankind, because of the many souls that will be lost to Heaven. How many have listened to My counsel and prepared? Have you become so blinded by your lives of luxury and worldly pursuits that you can no longer recognize what is happening about you? Murders abound. Blood flows in the street. Hunger shall be set upon your country. Many shall die. And why? Because you have turned your back upon My Son, the only One now who can save you from what is fast coming upon you." - Our Lady, May 30, 1981

"Your country, My child, now has been given the balance. It has in its own hands the power for good or evil. For all the luxuries and graces bestowed upon this land, man has used them now to destroy his soul. You have allowed the dragon to enter upon your country. You have opened the door to the brood of vipers.
    "I have now laid out the plan for salvation for your country. You will follow this plan or you, too, shall fall. I have placed My mantle over your country, but I cannot force you to come to Me.
    "You will all read the pages set down by John. You will not be ignorant of the days ahead, for man is always learning but never reaching the truth. Pray for the light and you will receive the understanding. Look for My Son and you will be given the way." - Our Lady, November 20, 1971

"You will not receive a kind ear from the clergy, for man can be wise but stupid. Man had grown soft in the luxuries of his worldly life. Man no longer seeks the revelation in the Bible.
    "I want you, My child, to repeat the words of My Son, given to your young son in his innocence of heart. I repeat the words of Jesus: 'My heart is sobbing, My hands are bleeding. I long to see My creation and be filled with joy.'" - Our Lady, February 1, 1971

"Your country is calling upon itself a greater danger, for when they seat themselves against My Son and seek to lock Him out of their houses and to lock Him out of their country, We have no recourse but to chastise you as We would disobedient children.
    "All about you, you see the disobedience of children. In your schools, your government, your churches--where is the respect, the honor to your God?
    "O you blind, foolish parents who do not recognize the products of your laxity! The blow, it will be visited upon you; for as you sow, so shall you reap. Yes, you parents are filling the bodies and minds with luxuries, but you have chosen to starve the souls of your children. Your children are being led farther into the darkness. We do not see the light ahead for them.
    "O mournful sight, to see the destruction that is imminent upon you! O mournful heart, for you who do not listen. When this comes upon you, you will still not believe what you see with your eyes. O My children, will you be counted among the few, or will you be lost forever to Us?" - Our Lady, July 25, 1971

“You have allowed the evil to grow strong in your country. You will remove from your country this seat of evil that grows strong in your city. The mark of the beast has labeled your city Babylon! Open your heart and eyes now to the truth, before it is too late. You are being blindly led to your own destruction. The brood of vipers within your city must be removed at once!
    “The world is fast turning to the darkness.
    “Man must learn to humble his spirit. His excessive luxuries are destroying his spirit. The arrogance of man in his intellectual life has made him build his nest in the sky, but I will fling the eagle from his nest!" - Our Lady, February 1, 1972

"Discipline must be returned to the House of God and the homes. Permissiveness must be stopped. You will not save souls by giving him the luxuries of life and pampering his worldly body.
    "Man no longer recognizes the value of depriving himself of these luxuries and suffering. He lives for the moments on earth. He blinds himself to the truth of his temporary pilgrimage upon earth." - Our Lady, March 25, 1973

"Remember, My children, in this battle of the supernatural, you must utilize every manner of grace, every sacramental. You must proceed with purpose and determination on the road to the Kingdom of your God. Every obstacle will be placed in your way. It is not an easy road. All who enter Heaven will enter by merit.
    "I repeat, do not spend your short time upon earth gathering the world's riches and power, for they are as nothing when you leave your body. Better that you store your graces in Heaven, gathering them to redeem you when you come over the veil.
    "Many live in dire poverty of material goods, and this We allow, for We foresee that riches often condemn a man to hell. Values must be changed among mankind. Spiritual re-awakening, or else a complete spiritual darkness will bring about the Ball of Redemption.” – Jesus, December 7, 1977

"My children, many of your brothers and sisters are selling their souls to get to the head. What does it matter if you gain all of the world's graces--and they call them graces, but how they foul the supernatural! It is no grace, My children, to achieve worldly acclaim and fortune. True grace only comes from Heaven, the eternal Kingdom of your God.
    "My children, many of these so-called gifts that man seeks upon earth--these gifts are from satan and the seed for his downfall, man's downfall. Satan has placed upon earth all manner of enticements to destroy and soil souls. Recognize, My children, the way of evil set by satan and the true way of the cross as given by the example of My Son." - Our Lady, April 1, 1978
