    God is in control of everything.

    Our Lord's message to Valentina, Sydney.
    27 July 2019

    Valentina, people are talking and wondering why you have such changeable weather all over the world. I tell you now, you are all going through the last pages of the book I spoke to you, in John, the Book of Revelation and the period of changes in the world. History is about to change forever.”

    “I, the Lord, Myself,” He said moving His holy hand in a sweeping circle, “am doing this.”

    “I keep shifting your courses of history and they are disturbing your weather and the nature is confused. Even science cannot find an answer as to why all this is happening. Drastically, they are moving and disturbing your planet, until mankind realises that it is God in control of everything, but man is blind and will remain blind and they have no knowledge of My Creation because they are not spiritual enough to discern right from wrong.”

    “These disturbing events will persist and will bring catastrophic disasters, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods, droughts, heat waves, icy weather, storms and so on, but still this will not awaken people to pray and to change men’s hearts. Their hearts will remain icy cold but this will not change them because their pride will prevent them from doing so, until My fire will come from Heaven to cleanse all evil from this sinful world.”

    People still not learn how to live peacefully on this earth. Are bringing there religion in midst saying they wont live without it. We are spending so many money on religious purposes and defense to curb terrorism and our enemies. Why not utilise those funds betterment of people to save earth..from give good infrastructure to people around for all indivduals and many more things. When cruelty is going to finish on earth. While looking such disasters around wants to learn many things and need to change ourselves for tommorow's better. It's true no one escape from disaster. Wealth wont rescue at all the time.
