THIRD MESSAGE OF THE FIRST LESSON
DATE: 27TH JULY, 2001
TIME: 7:00 PM
VENUE: OUR LADY OF LOURDES PARISH CHAPEL, IMEZI OWA
In our novena prayer, during this hour, I saw the vision of Our Lord Jesus Christ lying prostrate on a rock. I recognized that place as the Rock of Gethsemane I had seen in past visions. After a while, cloud came down and covered the whole place. In the cloud appeared, before the Blessed Sacrament, the Holy Agonizing Face of Jesus Christ, Who calmly said:
“My children, in the days of the coming rebellion, you will experience total abandonment. You will know what it means to be left alone. Those coming days are the hours of darkness. My Father permits those days to come so that the number of Martyrs will be completed. I am Jesus Christ, the Father and Hope of all the Martyrs. The blood of Martyrs is the pride of My Father against the enemy of My Holy Cross. My Father boasts about them. They are His joy and His inheritance.
Children, until the number of Martyrs is completed, the coming rebellion will not stop. Know that the coming persecution will be greater than what the early Martyrs suffered. You will experience total abandonment. In those days, the Divine consolation will be withdrawn from you. You will feel the gap of My loving Presence. This is the greatest hour of dryness and abandonment. Only the Grace of the Seal, the Sanctifying Grace of love, will sustain those who will survive.
Children, I have told you this before, I am reminding you again: “Woe to those who put their trust in man, they shall be disappointed and abandoned.” In these coming days of Great Rebellion, your own eyes will see a large number of the faithful turning away from their faith. I say to you, My children that many mighty men in faith now will fall and fight against the light. Many, who teach you now, will join the Evil Beast to persecute you. The fallen heroes will make your hidden camps known to the Evil One. There will be no place for you to hide in those coming days of great terror. You will cry to your God and receive no answer. As you lift your voice up to your God, fear, tiredness and hopelessness will weigh you down. You will seek for consolation from your brothers in faith and receive a bitter sword of abandonment.
Children, the coming Rebellion is so terrifying. Many of your leaders now, who will later fall and join the Evil Beast, will cut off your heads and suck your blood in the days of great massacre. They will see that you are tested well to abandon your faith. Many of you will give up their faith because they lack the grace of My Seal. But those who hold on to their faith till the end shall be saved.
Children, this is what made Me to offer you the Rose of Perfect Purity. Up till now, your eyes are not open to see the great favour. I did not see you rejoice for receiving this precious gift. It seems that the dark world blinded your minds and eyes. See how you will take this gift with less concern, as you did with the Agonizing Cross. I am looking to see My Apostles who will take up this work and help to offer the world what Heaven has offered them. I will reward them with an ever-bright Rose on the last day. I will rescue fourteen souls of their lineage from the torturing fire of Purgatory. They will not lack Sanctifying Grace in their lifetime. They console Me now; I will console them.
Children, this Rose will be your consolation during the hour of persecution. Your joy is the hope of your reward. This Rose will open your eyes to see your Eternal Reward. Happy are all who keep their Roses pure. During those days, they will not be totally dried up. I am the Agonizing Jesus Christ, Who experienced what it means to be all alone.
So, I bless you with the Sanctifying Grace of the Seal, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Gather the grace and remain in peace.”
Immediately, the vision passed.
Luke Chapter Nine
 And he said to all: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it; for he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall save it.  For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, and cast away himself?
Mathew Chapter Sixteen
 Then Jesus said to his disciples: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  For he that will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall find it.
Mark Chapter Eight
8:34 And calling the multitude together with his disciples, he said to them: If any man will follow me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel shall save it.
8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?
8:37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul:
