What did the Lord Jesus Write on the Sand when He Confronted the Adulterous Woman??

Jesus Christ the Lord asked the Blessed Virgin Mary to explain to us - not ONLY, 'EXACTLY what He wrote in the sand'; but ALSO, why it is so important, in these End Times.  Jesus wrote, "Thou shalt not kill".  The Blessed Virgin Mary then explained to us, that the Testimony, IS "the writing in the sand", in these End Times.  The Testimony has been given, so that people would turn AWAY from death - so that they would turn AWAY from "the LETTER of the Law" - referring in these Times, to "the letter" of the Bible and the Catholic Catechism - and begin once again, to live by the SPIRIT of the Law.   The Testimony has been given so that people can repent, and turn away from their sins; so that they can "sin no MORE", and have life - Eternal.  There is a page on this website called "What is the Testimony?"  The shortest and most accurate answer to that question is, "The Testimony IS the writing in the sand".  The Testimony was given at this point in history - a point that was foretold for thousands of years - a point when the abomination of desolation would ALREADY have been set up, and the mark of the beast would ALREADY have been given - a point when almost EVERYONE would be embracing "a heart of stone", and preferring death - a point when Jesus would need to stand BETWEEN the people and imminent death, so that they would be confronted with His Words of Truth and Life, and once again be given a chance to turn back, and to choose the Path of Life.  Back THEN, only a few chose to embrace the Path of Life - as almost ALL those people who put their stones down that day, decided to pick up large metal spikes instead, and drive them into "the hands that formed them" - into the Hands and Feet of their Creator.  And THAT, is why Jesus will NOT be returning in His Risen Body, before all Hearts turn to Him.  NOW, do you know why the Blessed Virgin Mary spoke to us as "Queen of all Hearts"? - because she is NOT the queen of "wicked hearts" - but ONLY the Queen of all the TRULY humble and contrite ones.  With all that in mind, now would be a good time to re-visit the above scripture passage, to see "the BIGGER picture".
"Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning he came again to the temple; all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such. What do you say about her?” This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote [(in the vernacular - the local language at the time)] with his finger on the ground [THOU SHALT... (but was Jesus referring to the sin of adultery?)].  And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once more he bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground [NOT KILL].  But when they heard it [- when they saw the Commandment; because they follow the LETTER of the law...], they went away, one by one, beginning with the eldest, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus looked up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and do not sin again.”
(John 8:1-11)
And so if you are now reading this, and you are NOT a Member of the Faithful Remnant, then you are NOW at a fork in the road.  There are only two paths to take: the path to the cold steel spikes - to Crucify US with! - or the path to becoming a Member of the Faithful Remnant - a path of humble and heartfelt repentance - a path of sinning no more - a path of Eternal Life.  Now it is YOUR turn to CHOOSE!
