…… WHEN EVIL PREVAILS AND BETWEEN THE SEVENTH DAY OF REST AND THE SEVEN THOUSANDTH YEARS OF THE REIGN OF THE KINGDOM OF THE DIVINE WILL WHEN GOD WILL REST.
Ps 90:4 and 2 Pt 3:8 But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day.
From the Divine Institutes, Book VII (Of a Happy Life), Chapter 14. Of the First and Last Times of the World.
Since all the works of God were completed in six days, the world must continue in its present state through six ages, that is, six thousand years. For the great day of God is limited by a circle of a thousand years, as the prophet shows, who says “In Your sight, O Lord, a thousand years are as one day.” And as God laboured during those six days in creating such great works, so His religion and truth must labour during these six thousand years, while wickedness prevails and bears rule. And again, since God, having finished His works, rested on the seventh day and blessed it, at the end of the six thousandth year all wickedness must be abolished from the earth, and righteousness reign for a thousand years; and there must be tranquillity and rest from the labours which the world now has long endured. But how that will come to pass I will explain in its order. We have often said that lesser things and things of small importance are figures and previous shadowings forth of great things; as this day of ours, which is bounded by the rising and the setting of the sun, is a representation of that great day to which the circuit of a thousand years affixes its limits.
When the Divine Will reigns in all creatures, God will find His rest and all evils shall cease.
From the writings of Luisa Piccarreta:
18 March 1922, Volume 14
The rest which God and the creature give to each other.
Then, afterwards, He came back and added: “My daughter, I feel the need for the creature to rest in Me, and I in her. But do you know when the creature rests in Me, and I in her? When her intelligence thinks of Me and comprehends Me, she rests in the intelligence of her Creator, and that of the Creator finds rest in the created mind. When the human will unites with the Divine Will, the two wills embrace and rest together. If the human love rises above all created things and loves only its God – what a beautiful rest do God and the creature find in each other! One who gives rest, finds it; I make Myself bed for her and keep her in the sweetest sleep, clasped in My arms. Therefore, you – come and rest in My bosom.”

The rest of God in creatures.
Then, I was continuing my little acts of adorations, of love, of blessings in the Divine Will for my Creator; and as I emitted my acts, the Divine Volition extended them everywhere and in every place where the Divine Will was present, which is such that there is not one point in which It is not present. And my always lovable Jesus added: “Dearest daughter of My Will, you must know that My Will knows not how to do acts by half, but complete ones, and with such fullness as to be able to say: ‘Wherever there is My Will there is My act.’ And Our Divinity, seeing the adoration, the love of Its creature laid within Our Divine Will, finds Its prop within Its immensity, at whatever point It wants to lean. So, We feel Our profound adoration which the creature has placed for Us in Our Will, and We lean upon it and We rest; We feel that she loves Us everywhere, and We lean within her love; and so with her praises and blessings. So, the creature in Our Will becomes Our prop and Our rest; and there is nothing that delights Us more than finding Our rest in Our creature – symbol of the rest which We took after having created the whole Creation.”
The universal purification and the end of evil.

God will accomplish the third renewal of humanity by manifesting what His Divinity did within His Humanity.
Now, it seemed that He was saying to me: “My beloved daughter, I want to make known to you the order of my Providence. Every course of two thousand years I have renewed the world. In the first two thousand years I renewed it with the Flood; in the second two thousand I renewed it with My coming upon earth, in which I manifested My Humanity, from which, as though from many fissures, My Divinity shone forth. And the good and the very Saints of the following two thousand years have lived of the fruits of My Humanity, and, in drops, they have enjoyed My Divinity. Now we are at the turn of the third two thousand years, and there will be a third renewal. This is the reason for the general confusion – it is nothing other than the preparation for the third renewal; and if in the second renewal I manifested what My Humanity did and suffered, and very little of what the Divinity was operating, now, in this third renewal, after the earth has been purged and the current generation destroyed for the most part, I will be even more generous with creatures, and I will accomplish the renewal by manifesting what My Divinity did within My Humanity; how my Divine Will acted with My human will; how everything remained linked within Me; how I did and redid everything, and even one thought of each creature was redone by Me and sealed with My Divine Volition. My love wants its outpouring, and wants to make known the excesses which My Divinity operated in My Humanity for the good of creatures, which surpass by far the excesses that My Humanity operated externally. This is also why I often speak to you about the living in My Will, which I have not manifested to anyone until now. At the most, they have known the shadow of My Will, the grace, the sweetness that doing It contains; but to penetrate inside of It, to embrace immensity, to multiply oneself with Me and penetrate everywhere, even while being on earth, both into Heaven and into the hearts, to lay down the human ways and act with the divine ways – this is not yet known; so much so, that not to a few will it appear strange, and those who do not keep their minds open to the light of truth will not understand a thing. But I, little by little, will make My way, manifesting now one truth, now another, of this living in My Will, so that they will end up comprehending It.
NOTE: From Adam and Eve to the time of Noah is 2,000 years. From the time of Noah to Jesus Christ is another 2,000 years. And it is now the year 2012. So from Adam and Eve to our present time is 6,000 years.
Chapter 24. Of the Renewed World.
Then that darkness will be taken away from the world with which the heaven will be overspread and darkened, and the moon will receive the brightness of the sun, nor will it be further diminished: but the sun will become seven times brighter than it now is; and the earth will open its fruitfulness, and bring forth most abundant fruits of its own accord; the rocky mountains shall drop with honey; streams of wine shall run down, and rivers flow with milk: in short, the world itself shall rejoice, and all nature exult, being rescued and set free from the dominion of evil and impiety, and guilt and error. Throughout this time beasts shall not be nourished by blood, nor birds by prey; but all things shall be peaceful and tranquil. Lions and calves shall stand together at the manger, the wolf shall not carry off the sheep, the hound shall not hunt for prey; hawks and eagles shall not injure; the infant shall play with serpents. In short, those things shall then come to pass which the poets spoke of as being done in the reign of Saturnus. Whose error arose from this source – that the prophets bring forward and speak of many future events as already accomplished. For visions were brought before their eyes by the divine Spirit, and they saw these things, as it were, done and completed in their own sight. And when fame had gradually spread abroad their predictions, since those who were uninstructed in the mysteries of religion did not know why they were spoken, they thought that all those things were already fulfilled in the ancient ages, which evidently could not be accomplished and fulfilled under the reign of a man. But when, after the destruction of impious religions and the suppression of guilt, the earth shall be subject to God.
The reign of the Kingdom of the Divine Will – the New Era and God’s rest.
Rev 10:1-3 Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain. He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent, which is the Devil or Satan, and tied it up for a thousand years and threw it into the abyss, which he locked over it and sealed, so that it could no longer lead the nations astray until the thousand years are completed. After this, it is to be released for a short time.
CCC 1076 The Church was made manifest to the world on the day of Pentecost by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The gift of the Spirit ushers in a new era in the “dispensation of the mystery” – the age of the Church, during which Christ manifests, makes present, and communicates his work of salvation through the liturgy of his Church, “until he comes.” In this age of the Church Christ now lives and acts in and with his Church, in a new way appropriate to this new age…
Ez 36:35 “This desolate land has been made into a garden of Eden,” they shall say. “The cities that were in ruins, laid waste, and destroyed are now repeopled and fortified.”
Ez 20:6, 15 and Jer 11:5 That day I swore to bring them out of the land of Egypt to the land I had scouted for them, a land flowing with milk and honey, a jewel among all lands…. Nevertheless I swore to them in the desert not to bring them to the land I had given them, a land flowing with milk and honey, a jewel among all lands.
Is 11:6-9 Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; The calf and the young lion shall browse together, with a little child to guide them. The cow and the bear shall be neighbors, together their young shall rest; the lion shall eat hay like the ox. The baby shall play by the cobra’s den, and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair. There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the Lord, as water covers the sea.
Is 51:3 Yes, the Lord shall comfort Zion and have pity on all her ruins; her deserts he shall make like Eden, her wasteland like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness shall be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of song.
Is 65:17-25 Lo, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the things of the past shall not be remembered or come to mind. Instead, there shall always be rejoicing and happiness in what I create; for I create Jerusalem to be a joy and its people to be a delight; I will rejoice in Jerusalem and exult in my people. No longer shall the sound of weeping be heard there, or the sound of crying; no longer shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not round out his full lifetime; he dies a mere youth who reaches but a hundred years, and he who fails of a hundred shall be thought accursed. They shall live in the houses they build, and eat the fruit of the vineyards they plant; they shall not build houses for others to live in, or plant for others to eat. As the years of a tree, so the years of my people; and my chosen ones shall long enjoy the produce of their hands. They shall not toil in vain, nor beget children for sudden destruction; for a race blessed by the Lord are they and their offspring. Before they call, I will answer; while they are yet speaking, I will hearken to them. The wolf and the lamb shall graze alike, and the lion shall eat hay like the ox but the serpent’s food shall be dust. None shall hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain, says the Lord.

Expectation of a new era. The surest sign that it is near.
… Then, afterwards, He added: “My daughter, the whole world is upside down, and everyone is awaiting changes, peace, new things. They themselves gather to discuss about it, and are surprised at not being able to conclude anything and to come to serious decisions. So, true peace does not arise, and everything resolves into words, but no facts. And they hope that more conferences may serve to make serious decisions, but they wait in vain. In the meantime, in this waiting, they are in fear, and some prepare themselves for new wars, some hope for new conquests. But, with this, the peoples are impoverished, are stripped alive, and while they are waiting, tired of the sad present era, dark and bloody, which enwraps them, they wait and hope for a new era of peace and of light.”
“The world is exactly at the same point as when I was about to come upon earth. All were awaiting a great event, a new era, as indeed occurred. The same now; since the great event, the New Era in which the Will of God may be done on earth as It is in Heaven, is coming – everyone is awaiting this New Era, tired of the present one, but without knowing what this new thing, this change is about, just as they did not know it when I came upon earth. This expectation is a sure sign that the hour is near. But the surest sign is that I am manifesting what I want to do, and that turning to a soul, just as I turned to My Mama in descending from Heaven to earth, I communicate to Her My Will and the goods and effects It contains, to make of them a gift for the whole of humanity.”
