In the beginning God created the angels, and the most magnificient of them all, Lucifer, with the greatest intellect and the clearest understanding of God, chose against God. Because of his pride, he chose to be a god himelf, rather than bow down to the true God. He obviously failed, yet still had the extreme pride and arrogance to fight back when evicted fron Heaven. In other words, it seems he expected to throw God out of Heaven, and take over. Sound familiar? The dream and goal of every despot that has ever lived on our planet. Satan's failure? The love of truth was not in him. The result? Disobedience! This is what satan has been working on since then.
In his "Tour of hell", Saint John Bosco was asked by God, what was the cause of all sin, and the Saint's answer was pride, but God added that pride was a great fault, but the main cause of ALL sin was disobedience.
So obedience to God comes from love of truth, which is simply love of God, but true love of God impels the desire for absolute obedience.
Time and time again, we see in the writings of the Saints, the lords preference for obedience over all else. To St Faustina: " ... I don't demand mortification from you, but obedience. By obedience you give great glory to me and gain merit for yourself."
A small act of obedience on our part opens up a large flow of grace to the world. As the devil said to St John Vianney, "with three more like you my kingdom on earth would be finished"!

The pre-requisite for Fatima is obedience, since without obedience, all our efforts are wasted.

Jesus to St Faustina on obedience: "...Yes, when you are obedient I take away yur weakness and replace it with My strength. I amvery surprised that souls do not want to make that exchange with Me."cft6 nnnnnnnnn

"A Testament of Devotion" P48 "I mean this literally, utterly and completely, and I mean it for you and for me - commit your lives in unreserved obedience to Him"
