St. Francis de Sales says: "Praise be to Jesus."
"Those who do not listen and heed these Messages* do not have regard for their own judgment before God. They are complacent in many sinful attitudes and do not see God's Judgment as imminent. The many warnings Heaven sends to earth through this messenger** and others go unheeded, as most do not see any consequences for their errant behavior."
"But, I tell you, God who sees all and judges all through the measure of Holy Love in hearts, grows weary in awaiting man's awakening as to the difference between good and evil. The reason this is such an obscure concept is mankind does not love God enough. Therefore, he is more intent on pleasing himself than in pleasing God by choosing good."
"This was the attitude of the general populace in Noah's day and why God sent the deluge. It was the way people lived in Sodom and Gomorrah. It is evil complacency. Pray for an awakening of hearts."

Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5+
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of stress. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.
Synopsis: These are the tribulations of the last days the heart of the world has entered as men have become lovers of self, worshipping the gods of money, power and the status of pride, arrogance, abuse, disobedience, profanity, ingratitude, slander, licentiousness, violence, and hating good. They have become treacherous, pompous, lovers of pleasures (of the flesh) rather than of God as they make a pretense of being religious, but abuse it's power and authority. As the Remnant Faithful, do not listen to them, but stay clear of their influence.
Read Psalm 82:8+
Arise, O God, judge the earth;
for to Thee belong all the nations!
Synopsis: A plea for God's judgment on the earth.
