SPECIAL COMMENTARY:
Answering the Ultimate Question –
Why Must Mankind Undergo the Great Tribulation?

By a soul
(April 29-30, 2020 – Month of Our Lord’s Divine Mercy)

Recently, Catholic prophet, John Leary (http://www.johnleary.com), was given the following message about the coming Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience) from Our Lord, Jesus Christ:

Thursday, April 23, 2020

Jesus said: “My people, before long I will bring about My Warning to give every sinner an opportunity to be either with Me or with the devil. You will all have a life review and a mini-judgment to see where you stand, either on a road to heaven, or on a road to hell. You will be placed back in your body, and you will have six weeks to convert your lives. You will make this decision without any evil influence. After this six weeks there will be only two kinds of people–those who are with Me, and those who are against Me. The good people will pass into My Era of Peace, but the bad people will pass into hell. It will be your free will choice that will determine your destination.”

Also, recently, Catholic seer, Valentina Papagna (http://valentina-sydneyseer.com.au), was given the following word from Our Lord, Jesus Christ:

April 19, 2020
Feast of Divine Mercy

“…I want you, Valentina, My child, to tell people that My Mercy is exhausted. They need to repent while there is still a little time left…”

* * *

And so, in this commentary, I want to answer the question of why mankind has to undergo the Great Tribulation. Because, if after six weeks following the Warning, everyone will make their final yes or no to following God, people may ask themselves why do we have to endure suffering during three and a half years under the reign of the antichrist? Why does God not cast all the people who turn away from Him into hell immediately and all those who say yes enter the Era of Peace right away?

The answer is very clear. It is because we will no longer be under God’s Divine Mercy but His Divine Justice. And because God Is Perfect, meaning that He Is Perfect Justice, mankind must atone for all his sins—both personal and societal sins. For example, people often think that personal sins such as abortion and sodomy have no societal effect. However, this is false. No sin committed by a person is wholly private—every sin has a societal effect even if we are not aware of its ripple effect and its consequences. And that is what the Warning will reveal to us—all our un-confessed and un-atoned for sins that affect our lives and the lives of others. Nothing will be a secret.

In Catholicism, we have the concept of “redemptive suffering” that I believe most who follow this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, are familiar with. Redemptive suffering is defined as the belief that “human suffering, when accepted and offered up in union with the Passion of Jesus, can remit the just punishment for one’s sins or for the sins of another, or for the other physical or spiritual needs of oneself or another.” Redemptive suffering also has the purpose of edification as souls strive for greater holiness, which will result in greater eternal happiness in the afterlife.

I believe that it is easy to understand that those who will be living in the refuges during the Great Tribulation will be suffering their “purgatory” on earth so as to prepare their souls to enter the Era of Peace, which will coincide with the Second Coming of Our Lord.

However, the less understood concept is that all of mankind has to atone not only for their personal sins, but for all the societal sins which mankind has been committing since the last time the earth was renewed (since the Great Flood of the Age of Noah) and all the un-atoned for sacrileges committed since the Crucifixion of Our Lord two thousand years ago. These un-atoned for sins include all the sins of those currently suffering as poor souls in purgatory (and according to the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, there are billions of souls in purgatory that need help from us on earth). Only those living on earth can help the poor souls in purgatory who still exist in the realm of time enter into eternal peace in Heaven. That is why indulgences speak about remitting punishment for sin relative to time spent in purgatory. Because poor souls really do suffer for many years—even hundreds of years—in purgatory if they have no help from anyone on earth. And we know from the Book of Truth that purgatory will be closed by God at the Second Coming, so all those billions of souls need our help on earth to enter Heaven.

And so, how must mankind atone for all these sins—our societal sins and the sins of those who are in purgatory? We must offer up all our prayers and sufferings in union with Our Lord to remit all the punishments due to our sins. And in particular, mankind needs to offer up all Our Holy Communions—this is the ultimate redemptive act—that mankind can do, in union with Our Lord, to remit punishments in purgatory for the poor souls and to lessen the chastisements due to our sins on earth.

Yes, Jesus died to save mankind from his sins two thousand years, but God still needs our cooperation in our own redemption and for the redemption of others. There is only One Name that can save us from hell, which is “Jesus Christ”. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, opened the Gates of Heaven to give the possibility to every soul of being saved, but this also requires every soul to cooperate with God by striving to avoid sin in thought, word, and deed, in every present moment of our lives. This counters the modern-day heresy of once saved, always saved, which many Christians (non-Catholics) believe. God the Father even said that it is because of this modern-day heresy that there is so much sin in the world today, because many Christians are breaking the Ten Commandments by sinning in every present moment and not seeking His forgiveness through His Son.

An example of sinning in every present moment, is relationships based in fornication. There was a heavenly message once where God stated that one of the hardest sins to forgive a person at the moment of death is fornication, because the person is living an unrepentant lifestyle. The person has no desire to change while alive, because they do not believe that fornication is a mortal sin that can separate them from God and Heaven. Many Christians believe this way and thus, have adopted pagan lifestyles. They do not value the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, which is as old as Adam and Eve, and the Ten Commandments. Because many Christians do not understand that in order to enter Heaven a person must be striving to live in God’s Divine Will, which is founded on His Ten Commandments. Those who choose fornication are choosing their own will instead of the Will of God, and unfortunately, Heaven is not open to those who want to enter on their own terms, not God’s. Thankfully, though, many such people are being prayed for by their loved ones who do honor God and His Ten Commandments. And so, due to many prayer warriors, such Christians have the chance for purgatory, because the prayer warriors in the family trust in the Merciful Love of God.

Anyways, I did not mean to digress, but I believe that the Lord desired me to specifically address that issue with blog followers. Unfortunately, Heaven has said many times that many Christians are living pagan lifestyles. And because of this, many chastisements are due to the world, because Christians are held to a higher standard than pagans because they have received the Good News of Jesus Christ. And even more so, clergy are held to an even higher standard than the laity because of their knowledge of the Gospel and all the sins of omission especially committed in the Holy Mass. That is why Valentina Papagna was also given a recent heavenly message about how there were about fifty priest souls in purgatory who died of the coronavirus and needed prayers. Although these priests died while performing the sacraments for those who were ill, they still went to purgatory. I believe it is because so many priests are held responsible for hundreds of thousands, perhaps, millions of sins of omissions and sacrileges committed against the Blessed Sacrament. And simply put, one sacrilege against the Body and Blood of Christ is horrible enough, because a person is sinning against Infinite Love, Mercy, and Justice—I cannot imagine how harsh the purgatorial punishment for a priest would be for hundreds of thousands of sacrileges, etc. The priests that are detained in purgatory definitely need our help, because they will likely be there until the end of time.

And so, it is not simply a matter of saying yes or no to God after the six weeks of peace have passed once the Warning has happened. In truth, everyone who says yes to God will have to work together so we can atone in union with Jesus to His Heavenly Father for all the collective sins committed for the past several thousand years. All the punishments that have been building up due to sin, which now, have to be atoned for before God’s Perfect Justice through redemptive suffering either through divine chastisements or offering Holy Communions in love to God. Which, to be honest, I prefer offering Holy Communions rather than divine chastisements, which I hope many people will choose through the experience of the Warning. Because Jesus has said the more people who convert through the Warning, the less harsh the divine chastisements will be, including the Great Chastisement, which I believe to be still conditional.

In conclusion, I want to share some heavenly messages from Holy Love Ministries (http://www.holylove.org), which speak about sin and salvation, because they may be helpful to some followers of the blog now, as well as in the future. In particular, they address the “once saved, always saved” heresy so prevalent in Christianity today. God bless!

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“The reason people are confused as to the difference between good and evil is they allow popular opinion to define good – not God’s Laws. These days, people do not love God more than their own will. It is, therefore, not as important to please God as it is to please themselves. As the world in general approves of these illicit values, it appears acceptable to embrace evil with an erroneous heart rather than stand for the Truth. These are the times which demand courage in the Truth.”

“You must not allow popular opinion to dictate approval of entertainment, dress codes, moral values, government policies and every type of behavior. Thousands, millions may accept sin, but it is still sin. When the soul stands before Me in judgment, it will not matter how many others committed the same sin. You must begin to make moral judgments based upon Holy Love. Ask for the grace to love Me more than yourselves.”

Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5+

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of stress. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“These days, boundaries are transgressed with reckless abandon. Every sort of compromise is readily embraced. I am not speaking merely of geographical borders such as this country’s southern border. I refer to the greater evil of compromised morals which oppose the Truth of sin.”

“Apathy towards one’s own salvation has become common place. The Commandments were given to be obeyed always in every present moment. Your salvation is in the present moment. You cannot claim salvation once, then embrace sin, and expect to be saved. The state of your soul at the moment of death is never compromised by Jesus but stands before My Son clothed in Truth.”

“Pray every present moment infuses your heart and the heart of the world in Truth, leaving behind every form of compromise.”

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“My children, tend to your duties in every present moment as though you are in My Presence. Embrace the Truth of all I have told you here.* Each of you has weaknesses you need to discover and strive to overcome. Do not believe that because you once surrendered to Me with love, that now you are sin free. I watch over your moment-to-moment decisions – some lead to eternal life – others lead to your perdition. Embrace My Commandments in thought, word and deed. Do not be misled to think that one decision to embrace My Commandments means you will never slip into error for the rest of your life. This is a trap of Satan to mislead souls into error.”

“Those who do not examine their consciences to discover their errors and sins, remain in sin. I embrace the repentant heart. The smug heart that believes he does not need My forgiveness slips to his perdition. I forgive the repentant heart as often as he comes to Me.”

Read 2 Peter 2:20-21+

For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overpowered, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them.

P.M.

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“This morning when I spoke to you* concerning the opinion of many that proclaiming one time that Jesus is their Lord is all they need do to gain Heaven, I addressed a modern-day heresy. If that were true, a person could proclaim Jesus as His Savior and then minutes, hours or even years later commit a horrendous act of violence, but expect to walk freely into Heaven. The Truth is, a soul cannot attain the heights of Heaven unless he guards very carefully his every thought, word and deed making them accountable to My Commandments. This makes him responsible in every present moment for his eternal reward.”

“My Son opened the Gates of Heaven to all, but each soul is responsible for making the journey there himself. Allow this Message to purify your journey into Heaven. Do not accept or believe in this popular heresy of a one-time effort to save your soul.”

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“Children, once again, I draw to your attention the value of the present moment. It is in every present moment that you earn your salvation. My Son opened the door to your salvation, but each soul must earn the right to pass through it. A one-time commitment to the Lord is not the passkey to the doorway to Heaven. The soul’s commitment to lead a sin-free life in every present moment is. This is the challenge of a Christian-lifestyle. This rebukes the modern-day heresy of a one-time commitment to My Son as your salvation.”

“Learn what sin is and how it separates the soul from Me. No one enters Heaven with an unrepentant heart. This is why the present moment holds the opportunity for your passport into Heaven. Live in the present moment in Holy Love. Do not depend upon a one-time choice of choosing your salvation.”

“The modern-day heresy to depend upon one choice opposes the reality of sin.”

Read Hebrews 3:12-13+

Take care, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

Read Galatians 6:7-10+

Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
