Think about the uproar when careless school teachers allow the children to do as the please on school trips, only to find them lying dead near a river-bank. What will all of Heaven think when careless priests and Bishops, who have let people do as they please, see them falling down into the depths of Hell?
If we enter a little door labelled 'The Past' we enter a world where Catholic churches were adorned with glorious images, to the glory of God and to inspire and educate the faithful. There is no reason why good Catholics today cannot commission and install powerful reminders of the Creation, of Christ and His Mother Mary, of the Last Judgement, and Heaven and Hell, and other subjects.
There are professional people who agree amongst themselves that acts always known by Christians to be sinful are not sinful, but, rather, are admirable, and to be recommended. These people spread their views, contradicting the Lord, even as sorrowing individuals try to set themselves free from their sins. And for their disobedience to God, and their leading others astray, those confident people will suffer. "They too will be judged".
Catholics deserve to hear the whole gospel, about Heaven and Hell, sin and sanctity. Those who hear no warnings are likely to persist in their sins; whereas only the foolish would commit adultery, for example, if they knew that were they to die suddenly before they have repented they would fall straight into Hell.
Christ looks on with sadness as many sinners ignore all His warnings and reminders about the fate of those who refuse to repent and to abandon their sins. Everyone alive on Earth right now is making his or her way towards Heaven, or towards Hell, by free and determined choices.
No mother tells a toddler all the details about car-accidents; but she warns him to take care. But when teenage boys and other people become preoccupied with pornography, lustful conversations and immoral activities, it is time to warn them quite frankly about the danger of falling into Hell.
It is usual to speak more about the love of God than the loss of God, to people of goodwill. But when sinful people are in danger of going astray, attracted by pornography, for example, the time has come to give stern warnings about the torments suffered in Hell by those who persist in mortal sin.
All who persist in mortal sin until they die will fall immediately into the fires of Hell, as Christ Himself has warned us. Through their own fault, they will suffer for all Eternity, having abandoned God, preferring the pleasure they found in adultery, pornography, or other serious sins.
There are large numbers of Catholics who imagine that they are active members of the Church but who have put themselves out of Communion by their dissent, rebelliousness and disobedience. In this precarious state, many are likely to fall into Hell when they die, unless they repent, and begin to love Christ and His Church
Christ will judge us when we die. No-one who dies will receive an unjust judgement. He can see which Christians have remained faithful - and which people who have followed other paths through ignorance have adhered to what is good and avoided what is mistaken or evil in their customs, and would have believed in Christ if they had known about Him.
The Lord showed me a person lying in total despair in the depths of Hell. The Lord said that people today urgently need to see what Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco saw at Fatima, long ago, to help them put their lives right. Everyone should reflect upon death, judgement, Heaven and Hell, and not waste their lives.
If we visit the sick, we please Christ. In the Gospel story, the King at the Last Judgement praised those who had visited the sick, visited people in prison, or had carried out other works of mercy.
Some clergymen try to forget that Christ said many 'hard sayings' about sin, Hell, judgement, and faithfulness to the Church; these are things often ignored or contradicted today, by those Catholic Bishops who are more keen to please their colleagues or their flocks than their Saviour.
The Lord asked me to paint a very large picture of the Last Judgement. He asked me to show the glory of Heaven as being like a blazing light at the top of the painting. I could include a stairway to Heaven, representing the only way there: the way made by Christ through His Death and Resurrection.
The Lord asked me to paint a big picture according to his instructions. I could add to it whatever, of what he has shown me, will improve the picture; but I must be certain to include the scene of the Last Judgement, in which Christ separates the saved from the damned.
Jesus once said that, "The measure you give will be the measure you get". If we want Him to act towards us with a merciful and gentle judgement, we must act with mercy and gentleness towards those who displease or annoy us.
In asking me to paint a Last Judgement, the Lord intends (He explained) to sum up for everyone the entire message which He has been giving me during over twenty years of teachings-in-prayer: the message that we are each on our way to Heaven or to Hell, which is why Jesus said: 'Repent and believe the Good News' about His love for us, and our hope of salvation.
"I Am Here", in the Sanctuary, Christ said to me. "I AM HERE, IN ALL MY GLORY, LIZZIE. PUT THIS IN YOUR PICTURE" - which meant, in the painting of the Last Judgement. In the area where I show people living a virtuous life, and going to Mass, I should place the figure of Christ, in His Risen Glory, in the sanctuary - just as I have seen him today.
People who persist in sin, and 'drown', are doomed souls 'lost' in the ocean, and utterly lacking the grace of God which is life. Yet they will rise up at the end of time, for the Last Judgement, when the justice of God will be revealed, as well as His marvellous work of salvation.
Everyone will see plainly, at the Last Judgement, who, in life, has pushed people aside to save his own life, and who has sacrificed his life to help others. The true state of each soul will be revealed; and the just will be rewarded, and the damned will return to Hell.
