So quickly, as if by a gigantic surprise, Satan will suddenly move his people into place. They will remain hidden, ready to come forth when he calls them. But, I will not allow him to complete the fullness of his plan. This would be too much. There would be desolation everywhere with no hope of any escape. This is the type of plan which he hopes to execute, but I will do two things.
First, I will not allow him to deploy all of his forces. I will not allow him to put them all in place. Some, which he puts in place, I will not allow to function as he would like. They will be in place but I will render them helpless. Their voices will be discredited ahead of time.
Secondly, I will open up gatherings of faith and my children will be aware of them. They will not know why I have led them to these gatherings. They will just know that I am leading them in this way. Only when Satan’s attacks begin will they see that these are saving gifts – the windows and doors that I have opened so they can escape. Yes, I say “escape” because to remain is to be lost. To foolishly cling to homes or material goods is to be swallowed up. Just as a place was prepared for me in the desert (12:6) where I was kept safe, so I will prepare places for all those who hear and receive my words. People must learn to go out into the desert, those places of solitude where I can gather my children. Did I not go into the desert? Would I not go to prepare a place for my children? This is how I will save them in the times of great trials that lie ahead.
Comment: Mary speaks in images. These are easy to understand, although what they refer to in the concrete is not yet clear. I am sure that she will explain this later.
