When the events begin and the armies of Satan are unleashed, everything will happen very quickly, like a blitzkrieg that attempts to begin and end the war quickly. Everything will be calculated to make people fear and to attribute to these armies more power than they really have. Satan wants a quick and sudden surrender so he is not unmasked. He will pretend to have power that he does not have.
Those Who Surrender
Many will surrender. Those who have no beliefs, for whom earthly life has always been an accommodation, a getting along will quickly surrender. Those who have never allowed strongly held beliefs to stand in their way will be among the first to surrender. Secondly, will be those for whom religious beliefs are not strong. They also will say, “It is hopeless”. Sadly, they will surrender their beliefs.
Those Who Stand Firm
But, those whom I have instructed by these messages will be ready to resist and even to fight back and to gather others to their cause. They will rise up. They will not hide. They will not be cowards. Their voices will be raised. Some, who believe but are wavering, will take heart that some are ready to take a stand. So, they will be attracted to join.
Theirs will not be an immediate victory. Just the opposite. They will be persecuted, marginalized and moved out of key positions. Yet, they will never surrender their beliefs. They will never go along. For this to happen, the lines must be firmly drawn. It must be around issues on which they will never compromise.
As they persevere, something new will be created, a society within a society. A society of light within a society of darkness. A society of truth within a society of the lie. This little group will be the saving society and anyone, if they wish to pay the price, will be free to join them. They will only survive because they bond together in charity (as I have so often mentioned).
Comment: Mary speaks of a fundamental shift in society where her children must bond together to survive in their faith.
