In the Midst of the Birth Pangs [updated]

“See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.” 

Matthew 24: 5-8

We are experiencing the unknown. No man nor science can explain why the world seems to be falling apart. As Christians, we know that our battle is not against nature, but rather with the fruits of evil that has planted itself in the hearts of mankind.

ThisiswarThe world no longer seeks answers from God, but from man himself. God has been removed from the physical and spiritual life of nations, and mockery of our Creator is commonplace. We have seen the desecration of Jesus, Our Blessed Mother, our Church, Christianity and the rising hatred of Christianity, Israel and all that is connected to God. We are in the midst of the greatest spiritual battle against Lucifer since the “times of Noah”.

”Ah! Those who call evil good, and good evil, who change darkness to light, and light into darkness, who change bitter to sweet, and sweet into bitter!

Isaiah 5:20

We as a people, created by God, no longer believe in the spiritual world, or in sin, but are focused on ourselves as if we were equal to God.

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.”

Genesis 1:26-28

I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; They will strike at your head, while you strike at their heel.

Genesis 3:15

Our combat with Satan is not the same as we battle in the physical world. We fight evil with prayer and love, as Jesus did. Many of us have seen the changes in countries as world leaders have embraced Lucifer and his empty power. As this battle unfolds, we must not lose faith and place our TRUST in GOD and only in Him.

Our Blessed Mother and the Holy Spirit continue to lead us in this fight against Satan.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Matthew 24: 29


Our Lady’s Message of July 26th, 2018

On the eve of the blood moon. on Thursday July 26, 2018, I was given the following message by Our Lady of Grace. As always, I ask everyone who reads this message to pray and discern all that I am writing.

Early Thursday morning, I was driving in the Texas Hill Country, and I began to receive messages from Our Lady in a locution. Then, that same night at 10:00 pm in our Adoration Chapel at St. Mary’s Catholic Church they continued….

In the locution Our Lady of Grace appeared very sad with tears in her eyes:

Ourladyofakita“My beloved son, I am grateful and I thank you for your steadfast faith on your spiritual journey of endurance all these years. The appointed time is now. All that has been given to my children through Holy Scripture, as well as my messages at different apparitions for centuries, has now begun. Prophecy in Holy Scripture is now being fulfilled.

I am asking for prayer and fasting to prepare my children for the changes that are taking place in these times of darkness and evil. Maria Esperanza prophesied in Venezuela that the beginning of God’s Justice would start in her country. The presence of Satan’s demonic influence of evil that has taken place in that country has now infected nations throughout the world.

The United States of America was the beacon of light to the world and has now embraced darkness. The bright light of hope is now diminishing. The focus of Lucifer’s plan has always been my Son’s church and the United States.

Satan has implanted in the hearts of my children a sinister plan to destroy all that is good. Evil is being exposed in all areas of society, and especially my Son’s church and governments of the world. You are witnessing God’s Justice in the changes that are taking place in the weather and many natural disturbances. Eruption of volcanoes, earthquakes, drought and many other disturbances of nature will continue. My children will suffer, and no man will be spared of the horrors that have started. The Antichrist is here on earth and will be visible very soon. Nations and political institutions are connected to him.

There is a great division among my children in all nations. God is neither liberal nor conservative. He did not place borders around nations at the time of creation. Man has arbitrarily drawn these divisions. The anxiety, anger and rage of those servants of evil has allowed evil to guide their selfish political views and continue to plant the seeds of Lucifer throughout the world.

God is pure Love but also Justice. He does not punish. Mankind has been blinded by Satan’s evil influence of mocking God and turning my children away from God. His evil harvest of hate, greed, power, abortion of the innocent and death and many other evil sins are the cause of what the world is experiencing. Mankind has turned away from God and His Justice is now taking place.

The world is in the midst of the “birth pangs” mentioned by my Son in the Gospel of Matthew. The evil in the entertainment industry from the West to East Coast of the United States has been a tool used by Lucifer to spread his gospel of evil. Sadness and sorrow will be the fruit to those who continue to desecrate and mock God, for they are paving the way to their own eternal damnation. The same will take place for those servants of Satan who support and encourage abortion, euthanasia, and who call evil good and good evil.

The Holy Father

I request that you pray for him. Do not allow personal feelings or rumors to induce prejudices against him. He is carrying a very heavy burden and needs prayers. Satan seeks to destroy him because he is the Vicar of my Son. There is much turmoil within the Church, and do not allow yourself to be part of the disorder or the deception. Pray for all priests and religious. Please remember my messages of La Salette, Akita and other places where I reference this turmoil. The Great Apostasy has started..

The United States of America

My message is to all my children of this world, but my focus is for the United States which was consecrated as the Tower of Light by Almighty God. Pray for the President of the United States of America that God will protect him. He has been chosen for the great task of these perilous times. Do not allow your own personal false convictions to deceive you. Satan has caused much confusion and tension among all political parties. This situation will lead to civil war in the United States and then chaos will spread worldwide. Remember the country of Venezuela for this is the course of your nation.

There is international anxiety concerning immigrants. Many nations are struggling with this. Pray that understanding will touch the hearts of those in power. Many immigrants are escaping war and terror, violence, hunger and genocide. Thousands are being crushed in the Middle East and Central and South America. There is so much division and hatred in the United States.

SoldierprayingWar is imminent, and the ripple effect will be evil’s breath of destruction. The armies of evil are already entrenched in large and small cities. This war is both physical and supernatural. Cities that once were in their glory will be turned into rubles just like in previous world wars. The pestilence of evil will turn brother against brother. There will be much suffering and death. The times will seem hopeless and dark. Hunger, fear and famine will be rampart throughout. Your friends will be your enemies. The peace that was hoped for in North Korea is a false peace. Remember, Lucifer’s greatest tools are lies and deception.

There is only one hope

The only solution to all these problems is prayer and fasting. I seek all of you to join me in continuous prayers, for our heavenly Father is the only one that can bring relief and refugee to those who seek Him.

I, your heavenly Mother and the Holy Spirit, have been given the task of the protection of God’s remnant church. I have selected many of my apostles, have taught them spiritually, and they are now ready to use God’s gifts for my Church in these times of tribulation. They have endured and struggled much, but are now ready to serve God. There are hundreds and even thousands of Christian communities that have been started to prepare for these times of darkness. I ask that you gather with your friends and neighbors and form small prayer groups where faith, support, prayer and devotion will blossom.

I have also prepared refuges of safety throughout the world. I have assigned Christian men and women and prophets to these refuges who will guide and bring you to safety. In the fullness of time, the Holy Spirit will speak to your heart and guide you to these places of refuge. All of God’s holy angels will stand ready to help you.

The final battle will be between my Son and Lucifer. When all prophecy in Scripture has been fulfilled, the chastisement will clean and eradicate all sin from this world. My remnant church will survive. Only the peace and the love of God will bring restoration to the heavenly Father’s creation.

Pray, Pray, Pray .. In the end, My Immaculate Heart will Triumph.

(Silence and sorrow as she ended this lengthy message…)


St. Paul: “the time will come when they [Christians] will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths.”

Timothy 4:3-4

PioprayingI would like to ask all of you to pray for my family and I. We pray for all of you as well as dear friends who have said yes to God. Only God and they know the pain, suffering and demonic attacks that they have gladly endured to be Servants of God. I’m especially thinking of men of God such as Jim Fifth, Mark Mallett and others who daily and selflessly serve Him.
