Creation awaits with eager expectation the revelation of the children of God; for creation was made subject to futility, not of its own accord but because of the one who subjected it, in hope that creation itself would be set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that all creation is groaning in labor pains even until now…
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be famines and earthquakes from place to place. All these are the beginning of the labor pains.
Creation is groaning, says St. Paul, awaiting “with eager expectation the revelation of the children of God.” What does this mean? Based upon the ecclesiastically approved messages to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, it would seem that all of creation, including the Lord Himself, is awaiting eagerly for man to once again resume “the order, the place and the purpose for which he was created by God” Vol. 19, August 27, 1926 — that is, for the Kingdom of the Divine Will to reign in man is it once did in Adam.
Adam lost his right of command [over himself and creation], and lost his innocence and happiness, whereby one may say that he turned the work of creation upside down.—Our Lady to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will, Day 4
But now according to Jesus, we are on the threshold of a new day, the “seventh day” after six thousand years since Adam walked the earth:cf. The Thousand Years
My ideal in Creation was the Kingdom of my Will in the soul of the creature; my primary purpose was to make of man the image of the Divine Trinity by virtue of the fulfillment of my Will upon him. But as man withdrew from It, I lost my Kingdom in him, and for as long as six thousand years I had to sustain a long battle. But, long as it has been, I have not dismissed my ideal and my primary purpose, nor will I dismiss it; and if I came in Redemption, I came to realize my ideal and my primary purpose — that is, the Kingdom of my Will in souls. (Vol. 19, June 10, 1926)
And hence, Our Lord even speaks of Himself as groaning, awaiting to bring the first creature born in original sin into the Kingdom of the Divine Will, which is Luisa.
Now, in the round of the centuries I looked for one to whom to entrust this Kingdom, and I have been like a pregnant mother, who agonizes, who suffers because she wants to deliver her baby but cannot do it… More than pregnant mother have I been for so many centuries — how much I have suffered! (Vol. 19, July 14, 1926)
Jesus then explains how all of Creation acts as a veil hiding, as it were, the divine attributes, and above all, the Divine Will.
…the whole Creation is pregnant with my Will, and agonizes because It wants to deliver of It for the creatures, to establish once again the Kingdom of their God in the midst of creatures. Therefore Creation is like a veil that hides my Will, which is like a birth within It; but creatures take the veil and reject the birth present inside of It… all the elements are pregnant with my Will. (Ibid.)
Hence, Jesus will not “rest” until the “children of the Divine Will” are “born” in order that all of Creation would be brought to perfection.
Those who think that Our highest goodness and infinite wisdom would have left man with only the goods of Redemption, without raising him again to the original state in which he was created by Us, deceive themselves. In that case Our Creation would have remained without Its purpose, and therefore without Its full effect, which cannot be in the works of a God. (Vol. 19, July 18, 1926).
The generations will not end until my Will reigns upon earth… The third FIAT will give such grace to the creature as to make him return almost to the state of origin; and only then, when I see man just as he came out from Me, will my Work be complete, and I will take my perpetual rest in the last FIAT. —Jesus to Luisa, February 22, 1921, Volume 12
