Why are the chastisements delayed? Because the little ones stand before God with their arms upraised in intercession. Their prayers rise as sweet incense and the heavenly Father’s justice is blinded to the sins of men. How long can this continue? How long can the intercession of the few cover over the sins of the many? This is why I speak. The world is enjoying a time of reprieve, yet it does not understand this. The world feels that it has many years of future blessings. The world believes that God will not act. Oh, he will always act as a Father, always tempering his justice, always seeking another way to correct the situation. But a time comes when the children have decided the issue.
That is my teaching. The children of this world decide the issue. They are the ones whose hearts are free. They refuse to turn back. They continue to move ahead. They lead the world astray. When some children lead others astray, can the Father do nothing? Must he not act for those who are being led astray? This is how you must see the issues. For the good of those who can be saved, the Father must act.
Before that moment (Oh, that terrible moment when I see what must happen if men do not repent), the Father has sent me. He has told me, “You will be my final preacher. If they do not listen to you, then I have no one else to send. If I send my Son, Jesus, it will be the end.”
In the midst of all man’s sins, what will I preach? If I condemn all that needs to be condemned, the list will be too long. Men will be confused and lose hope. So, as a good preacher, I will pick out one sin, the most heinous of sins, the one that most arouses the anger of God. I will preach against that sin. My message will be easily understood and this is my promise. “If the world repents of this one sin, I will hold back the chastisements of God and there will be a springtime without a winter. Otherwise, the deadliest of winters will settle upon the earth.
The sin that stirs the anger of the Father is the killing of the unborn. Repent of this sin and turn back to life. I will protect you, if you protect these little ones. Do not say this is impossible and that the political forces are too great. Let us begin. I will bless your efforts, stirring the hearts of others to join you.
Comment: Mankind has many sins, too numerous and too confusing to even list. Mary picks out the great sin of abortion and promises that the Father’s anger will abate if mankind repents of this.
