We did not want Him. We said our collective non serviam to Him, because we prefer to live in a wasteland, rather than in the love, life, light and joy of the One, true God. Our Father respects us. Unlike human beings, He respects our will despite our choices. Thus the beginning of the onset of the desolation is now upon us, as God does not stay where He is unwanted. He is, after all, a Person; albeit a divine Person. Consequently, we shall now reap what we have sown.
