We are only here for a short time on this Earth. The promise of eternal life is a no brainer. The people who are seeking this are the dumbest people who have ever lived, because and I quote "Our Lady" who is visiting this Earth daily.
September 2, 1981Our Lady apparitions at Medjugorje, Vicka is one of the visionaries.
Vicka asked about a young person who hanged himself.
"satan took hold of him. This young man should not have done that. The devil tries to reign over the people. He takes everything into his hands, but the force of God is more powerful, and God will conquer."
Did you miss that bit "satan took hold of him".
In other words, if you commit suicide and are of a sound mind at the time, remember only God can judge your actions, then you are going to Hell forever. Trust me, what these visionaries have said and described about Hell - you do not want to go there.
Interestingly, me writing the above about only God can judge your actions, in truth when you die it is you who decides where you deserve to go.
The other downside to suicide is it robs the opportunity for someone on this planet to do good by someone, and it is going against God's wishes for you.
If you do not believe in Hell, then please read and reread the following quote:
When Lucia announced that she had been given secrets, she probably faced the same kind of fearful speculation that we’ve had to endure all these years. But the Blessed Mother did not entrust me with secrets for the purpose of causing fear. When you come to know Heaven, you learn to accept the will of God with all your heart.Excerpt from the book "My Heart Will Triumph" by Mirjana Soldo (go and buy the book if you found these two pages intriguing).
Why be afraid of what might happen tomorrow if we don’t even know what will happen in an hour? The only thing we need to fear is sin, which distances us from God. Fear of the future, and fear of the secrets, wastes our limited time on Earth. Your future could end today. We should cherish life while it lasts.
So, when Our Lady told us that Medugorje would be the fulfillment of Fatima and that her heart would triumph, it was a message of hope, not gloom. She was reminding us that when we walk with her we have nothing to worry about. But even now, people often ask me how they should prepare for the time of the secrets.
Should they stock their basements with food? Move to the countryside and live off the land? Buy a weapon to protect themselves?
I tell them, “Yes, you should get a weapon, and you should use it often.” I show them my rosary. “This is the only weapon you’ll ever need. But it only works if you use it.”
In one of her earliest messages, Our Lady told us, “Prayer and fasting can stop wars and change the laws of nature. ’’She was not speaking figuratively; prayer is more effective at creating change than anything we can do alone. The rosary is an especially powerful prayer.
So, should you prepare for the future? Yes. Prepare by making sure your soul is always ready to stand in front of God—not by building bunkers and stockpiling supplies. No one can live in this world forever. We should focus on what comes next. I have experienced Paradise, and I can attest that there’s no place on Earth—no mountain range, tropical island or seventh wonder—that compares to what awaits those who choose light over darkness.
"God gave you free will to choose life or death, "Our Lady said on March 18, 2003 during my annual apparition. “My children, without God you can do nothing; do not forget this even for a moment. ”
Our Lady’s message is clear: we are all destined for eternity, but our actions on Earth dictate what it will be like for us. Our Lady showed me just a hint of what awaits those who reject God’s love, and even the little I know is enough for me to feel immense sadness for every wayward soul.
In Fatima, Our Lady showed the seers a vision of Hell. According to Lucia, the Blessed Mother showed them “a vast sea of fire. Plunged in this fire, we saw demons and souls. The latter were like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, having human forms.”
According to eyewitnesses at the apparition, it was during this vision that Lucia cried out with fright. The lost souls, said Lucia, were being thrown about in the chaos “like sparks in huge fires,” and she could hear them groaning with despair. She described the demons mixed in amongst the souls as having a “terrifying and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, black and transparent like burning coals.”
Lucia said that the vision of Hell lasted only a moment. When it was over, Our Lady dictated a special prayer to the children.
"When you pray the Rosary, "the Virgin told her, ‘after each mystery, say: O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of your mercy.”
The so-called “Fatima prayer” is now recited throughout the world whenever people pray the rosary. I was taught from an early age to include it in my own prayers, although I did not know its origin until years later. I must admit that I wasn’t as fond of it then as I am now. The concept of Hell was always difficult for me to comprehend, and I struggled with it even after the apparitions began.
If a man commits a crime and goes to prison, I thought, he’s usually released and forgiven after he does his time. Sentencing a soul to an eternity of suffering seemed contrary to the merciful and loving God I had come to know.
So, one day during an apparition I asked Our Lady, “How can God be so unmerciful as to condemn people to Hell for eternity?”
“Souls who go to Hell have ceased thinking favorably of God, "Our Lady told me. In life they cursed Him, she explained, and in death they will continue to do the same. In essence, they’ve already become part of Hell. God does not send people to Hell. They choose to be there.
“But even if people go to Hell, can't they pray for salvation?” I asked. Surely God could still deliver them, I thought.
*People in Hell do not pray at all, ’ said Our Lady, explaining that they blame God for everything instead. They become one with Hell and they get used to it. They rage against God, and they suffer, but they always refuse to pray. In Hell, they hate God even more than they hated Him on Earth.
Of course, the line between salvation and exile is not as black-and-white as some people seem to think.
Everything in the hereafter is governed by love. The Church teaches of a place between Heaven and Hell, and Our Lady has confirmed its existence. I asked her once where most people go when they die. She said that most go to Purgatory before ultimately passing through to Heaven. The next greatest number go to Hell, and few go directly to Heaven.
Our Lady once showed me a brief glimpse of Purgatory. In something similar to a movie projection, I saw a vast, gloomy mist in which obscure human forms shivered and writhed. The vision only lasted a few seconds and it troubled me deeply, but Our Lady assured me that Purgatory was more of a mercy than a penalty. “Since nothing can live in the sight of God but pure love, "she said, “God's justice cleanses. ”
There are different levels to Purgatory, she explained—levels closer to Hell and levels closer to Heaven.
Every soul there is already saved, which is why I envision Purgatory to be more like an outer rim of Heaven instead of a separate place altogether. Even the word “place” is inadequate to describe something that exists beyond the temporal world.
My advice: you are very dumb if you kill yourself (and are of sound mind).
