I made mention of this topic on another thread, as I have been contemplating on what I have been reading lately about the coming changes in our world. This had nothing to do with the thread, and I was questioned on my sketchy reference to this, so I decided to post it here.
This is a long post on a very important topic, full of long quotes. A lot of people won't read this because it is long, but I am posting it anyway.
The book I have been thinking about, and from which I quote below can be read online in the free library (Under the "Resources" tab on the home page) at the Direction For Our Times website. That website represents just one of the many, many great graces God is pouring into this world through many sources, to prepare us for coming upheaval. He wants us to be prepared. Great, great upheaval is ahead in the world, as has been foretold by so many all over the world. There are false prophets out there who copy the things of God but change them just enough to derail us from truth. Yes, they are there, but there are many true prophets. The works at Direction for Our Times are true.
All of the quotes come from Volume 8 in the free library mentioned above. The other Volumes are about spiritual growth and who God is, and were in print for several years, but Volumes 5 and 8, which address the coming upheavals and difficult days, were withheld from printing and distribution until rather recently.
Rather than put what I read in my own words, I am going to quote various random parts that stand out to me. It would be better to read it in full context and if you want to you can read the whole volume online as mentioned above.
The quoted words are in the columns here, and the words of Anne are in regular type, and the words of Jesus are in bold. Anything that is underlined is my underlining. Also if anything is in red, know that it was my making it that way - it is not that way in the original text.
I am starting with this quote about how, sadly, some will respond to God in the coming hardships.
"Today our Lord again talked about how some
people would turn to Him in hardship, and how
others would curse and blame Him. He has spoken
of this before and it really is a no-win situation for
Him. This is how the enemy works, though, in that
when all is well, God is someone to be ridiculed
and holy people are patronized. When all goes
wrong, God is bad and people say the most terrible
things about Him, as though they were following
Him anyway. "
Okay, here it is about the coming cleansing of the world. This is the "Age of Disobedience" I mentioned in that other thread, explained here, by Anne, who had it explained to her by Jesus.
Our God is prepared to act in order to cleanse the
world. He would be justified in destroying the
world, such is the level of rebellion against Him.
Because of His great love for us, He cannot bear to
do that, but He is allowing change and the angels
prepare to act. Jesus says that in times past, even as
near as the first half of the twentieth century,souls
were generally obedient. This is not so anymore.
During this time,souls are generally disobedient.
Before this next part I want to explain that much has been written about these coming days. Here are more details. You may have heard of the "Rapture" - well, there will be no rapture. We will all be here, believers or not. There will be many difficult times on earth and they start when the moon turns red (more on that below) and when the moon turns red it will commence rapid, constant and huge upheavals in the world all the culminating in the great 3 days of darkness when hell will literally be unleashed on earth. Evil will kill itself off basically, and the earth will be cleaned and new and different. More is written about new age of obedience in Volume 8.
Below are various quotes about the days of upheaval and about the 3 days of darkness which will be actually a good thing because the evil will be almost over. Here is more info on the terrible three days of darkness, from which ANYONE who is here, who has survived the previous events, will have God's protection if they want it:
Today Jesus talked to me about the darkness. He
said that it would originate in hell and for that time,
the duration of the darkness, the world would be
entombed in this darkness from hell. It originates in
hell but is allowed to flow out into the world for this
period of time, encircling the world until it meets
and the darkness is total. This darkness is black and
is the total absence of light. I keep trying to stress
the blackness but that is because it is so total and
complete that I am not sure if people can really
grasp its density or completeness. I do not
understand this concept of total evil but Jesus
assures me that some people will welcome this
darkness and exult in it. He said some will know
demons by name because they have affiliations with
them already. I heard an example of the most horrid
screams and screeches, like a wild cat would make.
These demons will perform the vilest of tortures
upon people. These are not the people of the Light,
by the way. I am to see our experience of this time
later. During this time, truly hell has come to earth.
Jesus does not want this or will it, but He definitely
is allowing this and it is a part of His justice. The
evil souls in the world are resting upon the grace of
God, despite their mockery of it. They are laughing
at God but it is God who keeps them protected and
comfortable on the earth while they practice all
kinds of sin and deception. In other words, while
they are living like demons, they are enjoying the
fruits of God’s goodness. This is so temporary and
they will reap what they are sowing soon indeed. I
am trying to think of a good analogy so that others
can understand this.
You are eating the wonderful food from your host’s
banquet, all the while making fun of and scorning
your host, who continues to feed you. You abuse
the host’s children terribly, in full view of the host,
while laughing at him and as it were DARING him
to act. You are taking advantage of the host’s good
manners, as evil people so often do now. The host
is about to act and the host’s enemies are about to
get thrown out of the gathering. They will then no
longer be able to prey on God’s good people who
do not fight back in the same way because they
They will not be able to practice their evil in the
same way when they are surrounded by people like
themselves. This will happen during the time of
darkness. If they call out to Jesus, He will answer
them. The really prideful people will not call out to
Jesus because they hate Jesus. I cannot even fathom
who these people are or why they would choose
hell over Christ but He assures me that this is
exactly what is occurring. The saints will be
gathered before the Throne during this time, as will
all of heaven, begging God to end the darkness
quickly. There will be satanic sacrifices and
offerings all over the earth during this time of the
most abominable evil.
About the chastisements, and then more about the three days of darkness:
Jesus was heavy-hearted today and said that
chastisements would come with great loss of life.
He asked me to kneel down and pray for these souls
who would be taken abruptly. Jesus is not happy
about this, but we must move through the storm in
order to emerge on the other side.
Jesus told me that during the time of darkness holy
souls will be gathered together and that souls who
barely know each other will be placed together per
His instructions. He said that much has been written
about this time of darkness in the past, but that He
does not want to generate fear and that fear is
neither necessary nor appropriate if you are
following His path. He said that young children will
sleep and that adults will pray constantly, but not
from terror. Adults will be experiencing union with
Jesus, hearing His voice, so they will find it easy
and will desire to remain in constant prayer. Jesus
said that you would not go outside during this time
in the same way you would not go outside during a
violent storm because it would not be safe. He also
said though that holy souls should not worry about
being attacked by demons because demons are
repelled by prayer, holiness, and holy souls.
Demons will not want to be near those places where
there are holy souls gathered in prayer. Because hell
will be emptied and kind of loosed on the earth, it
will be a conflagration of evil on earth, and that this
is the big mardi gras of evil if you will, where evil
on earth will destroy itself.
After the abomination, committed by the man Jesus
spoke to me about, Jesus will end the darkness, the
earth will be cleansed, and the time of the Great
Disobedience will be at an end, giving way to a
time of peace and obedience on the earth, which
will last for a long time. A great many events will
transpire before this darkness, including the signs
that Jesus has referred to.
Now Jesus speaks (the bolded parts). Please note that the paragraphs are from where I pulled various quotes from Volume 8 and may not be in order. Underlining is me. He starts here with what He desires right now:
I am seeking a great
detachment during these times. My words
and the graces attached to them will help
souls with this process. I am Jesus Christ
and I am seeking out My children. I want to
protect you. All who know Me, know that I
am gentle, indeed the most gentle of men.
My Divinity is also gentle and I desire that
souls be at peace. It is for this reason I am
so generous with My words and graces. I
am sending everything your world needs to
move through difficult times with
confidence and joy. ...
I personally love that last sentence because it reminds me of one of my first and always heroes, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, whose life showed how even being miserable in a concentration camp ones soul could soar. I would like my soul to be like that, and I know that God wants that for all of us, and that we achieve it by His grace only by asking for that gift.
moon turns to red, My child, the
calamities will begin and there will be no
break in the events. They will come one
after the other. People who are prepared
will feel the quietness in their souls.
People who have rejected Me will either
choose Me then, or take another step
closer to hell. This time is near.”
“I have sent many signs to mankind
but they are ignored. This level of
rebelliousness will not continue. For those
who tell you that man is no worse than he
ever was, let Me say this. Never in the
history of humanity was the slaughter of
so many met with so little resistance. The
taking of an innocent life through
abortion can never be My will. Do not view
these scenes as punishment because I have
no need to punish man in this way. I do
have a need to get man’s attention and
when I allow man to reap what he has
sown, calamities occur. Man then begins
to consider his eternal soul and his
entrance to eternity. Men, even those who
are not following Me, consider what will
happen when they meet Me. I want
changes in this world and changes will
occur. Be at peace because the good souls
who lose their lives in these incidents are
martyrs to the times. Souls following
darkness who are taken will have an
opportunity to repent. Consider your role
in the coming of the Kingdom and trust
that I will care for everything.”
Anne sees visions of some events, and Jesus comments:
I use the word upheaval. The events you
witnessed, which are representative of the
many events that will occur, will begin
soon. They will come quickly, one after the
other and you will know that I have
spoken of this as the time of upheaval.
In response to your question of whether or
not I want to clarify when soon is, My
answer to you was “no.” I will not clarify
soon to you,little servant, because you are
heavily burdened as it is and do not need
that additional weight. (I thanked Him very
sincerely.) You are welcome.
Can you see why I want My words
distributed? I want to be with souls and I
want souls to know that I am with them.
They will face these events in peace if they
have practiced relying on Me and trusting
Me. They will face death differently...
More sobering truth follows. A price is paid to usher in the new age of obedience. We all die sometimes. This is certainly one of the better reasons.
Some will die during this time. We all face
death if we are human and that is what I
want you to stress to people when you
speak. Refer to the message I gave to you
when you asked to read the messages of
another. This was very human of you,
Anne, so do not be ashamed. You wanted to
know what would happen. I told you that
you would live for a time and then you
would die. It was not My will that you
knew more than that from someone other
than Me, your Jesus. I do not like souls
seeking information to frighten others.
Warn others, yes. But you see that even
when I am giving news that could
frighten, I am gentle and loving and
concentrate on the Truth, which is that
heaven will be actively involved in the
events on earth and in the lives of those
who welcome us. I tell you again, do not be
afraid. There is no need.
Anne has a question, and Jesus answers:
[Anne speaking]: He does not like this, clearly,
but this is the way it’s going to go. I did say, “Lord,
you are all-powerful. This darkness is not in charge.
Would You not just appear in the sky and say,‘Here
I am. I am God. Change?’”
He replied, “Anne, I have done that. I have
appeared in many ways. My mother is
appearing all over your world, begging
her children to change. The world has
Scripture, which many ignore. The world
has prophecy, which many ridicule. The
world has My presence in every holy soul.
There are healers whom I have sent to
inspire faith. You knew I was with you
long before you experienced anything
supernatural. How did you know? You
knew because every soul knows that I am
here.Some tell themselves I am not here in
order to secure license, which they use to
sin and draw others from Me. No, My
child. It is not I who have failed. These
words will save many. I am sending
warnings from every corner of the world
during this time. I am doing My part. Let
every soul do theirs. We will save many,
but we will lose many, and that is why My
heart is heavy. Be at peace with this as you
are doing your part to comfort Me by your
obedience and your presence in My
[I just want to add, because of Jesus' strong words on the slaughter of abortion, that Jesus is very merciful and understanding of anyone who has gone through this. At the website I mentioned in that free library you can scroll down past the ten volumes to the booklets and click on the "Heaven Speaks About Abortion" booklet and see what Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and His Blessed Mother have to say on that to anyone who has taken part in this. You can see, it is all mercy.]
