A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

Messenger: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.

Genesis 1:27

God created man in the image of himself,
in the image of God he created him,
male and female he created them.

Genesis 1:28-31

     God blessed them, saying to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that move on earth.’ God also said, ‘Look, to you I give all the seed-bearing plants everywhere on the surface of the earth, and all the trees with seed-bearing fruit; this will be your food. And to all the wild animals, all the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that creep along the ground, I give all the foliage of the plants as their food.’ And so it was. God saw all he had made, and indeed it was very good. Evening came and morning came: the sixth day.

Genesis 2:3

God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on that day he rested after all his work of creating.

Genesis 2:16-17

Then Yahweh God gave the man this command, ‘You are free to eat of all the trees in the garden. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you are not to eat; for, the day you eat of that, you are doomed to die.’

Genesis 2:25

Now, both of them were naked, the man and his wife, but they felt no shame before each other.

Genesis 3:17, 18, 19

     To the man he said, ‘Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

   Accursed be the soil because of you!
   Painfully will you get your food from it
   as long as you live.
   It will yield you brambles and thistles,
   as you eat the produce of the land.
   By the sweat of your face
   will you earn your food,
   until you return to the ground,
   as you were taken from it.
   For dust you are
   and to dust you shall return.’

Messenger: Adam and Eve chose their own will rather than God’s.

God wants us to do His will.

Man is to follow God’s will.

Man is to walk in the name of the Lord.

There have been many men that have walked in their own names and controlled those under them, building their own kingdom to glorify themselves.

There is a difference between the way men and women think and feel.

The Word will become more and more alive in us as we dwell in the spiritual womb of the Woman through the working of the Holy Spirit.

The Christ-life is brought forth more and more in us, the incarnation goes on in us.

God has given us the rules to live by, the Word, the Commandments, the Church. When priests become in charge of their churches and communities, yet see the authority coming from themselves and break with the mandates coming down from the authority over them, we have a real problem.

Power comes from God. It is given to man from God. When man chooses his own will and breaks with the authority above him, then that power line is broken.



Messenger: When fathers do not follow the Commandments, the teachings of the Church, the Word, this power line is broken. The man becomes the one at the head.

Power comes from God.

God created them male and female to produce fruit for the kingdom, not to produce fruit disconnected from God for our selfish gain.

Things did happen in the garden and curses were given from God because of the sin. God says to the man:

Genesis 3:17

...Accursed be the soil because of you!
Painfully will you get your food from it
as long as you live.

Genesis 3:19

By the sweat of your face
will you earn your food...

Messenger: And then we see the New Adam sweat Blood, suffer and die that we would be able to eat His Body and drink His Blood, that we would have the Bread of Life.

In John He says:

John 6:35

Jesus answered them:

  I am the bread of life.
  No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
  no one who believes in me will ever thirst.

Messenger: Things happened in the garden. Man would suffer, He says to the woman:

Genesis 3:16

...Your yearning will be for your husband,
and he will dominate you.

Messenger: Because Adam did not obey God and listened to his wife -

Genesis 3:17

...Accursed be the soil because of you!
Painfully will you get your food from it
as long as you live.

Messenger: And the whole race has suffered.

God is at the top, we can’t listen to others and disobey God and His Commandments and His Word.

How many have listened to men and men and men and done things that are in direct conflict with what God says.

That is why it is so upsetting when I see a textbook my son is using describing the most famous men in history and they put Jesus in third place!

All power is under Him. We need to study Jesus.

Mary is the most perfect human person.

Why study other men whose fruits were not fruits for the kingdom?

By their fruits you will know them.

If lives are off from the truth we should not study their lives as a model for us.

That is why it is so important to pray the rosary. The more I pray all 15 decades daily and even extra rosaries, the more my life is focused on Jesus, the New Adam, and Mary, the New Eve.

Their lives are engrained in my life from this daily contemplation on the mysteries of the rosary.

In a world that is filled with error and untruth, every day my life is filled with the truth as I connect with the lives of Jesus and Mary in the rosary.

There is the joy of the Incarnation, of the Savior being born, of the lives of Jesus and Mary, lives of being in the Father’s will. From this I live on a deeper level. There is the Passion I know so vividly in my life as I identify with the mysteries in the Sorrowful set and the glory I experience from the Glorious Mysteries from knowing the Victory over death and the Coronation of Mary Queen of heaven and earth.

I revel in this gift God has given. I am the child of the Father and more and more my Pa-Pa is present in every breath I take. My life is lived to more completely let it unfold according to His will.

I look intently to the days ahead when all men will be so one living in harmony according to His will.

I do not decide how life is to unfold by studying men of the past. I learn this from being the bride of Christ, wanting what He wants, living by His Word and the Commandments. I am the Spouse of Christ, He is my Head. Any power I have comes only from Him. He sets dictates to follow, He gives us His Church, the body of Christ, His bride.

The Incarnation goes on in me and in His Church as the Christ-life is born and develops in us in the spiritual womb of our Mother Mary through the working of the Holy Spirit.

And there are children, children of light, children brought forth from the New Eve, the one that was immaculately conceived.

Oh, children of light will fill the churches, the brothers and sisters begotten of God, radiating His life within them, living by the rule, the will of God.

Oh glory of glories, the adoration and devotion goes to God, we bow to Him as King and Ruler.

God is God in all hearts and His dominion is over all. He is acclaimed by all people Victor, Counselor, Redeemer, Savior and Lord.

Father, Son and Holy Spirit are known in the hearts, are followed in the wills. The glory of God is reflected through the people as He lives in them.

Oh holy day when He reigns as King in their hearts.

My men, this day is upon us and all the tears will be turned to joy.

The Lady of Peace, the Queen of Peace, Mary Immaculate, Our Lady of Guadalupe, OUR LADY of FATIMA delivers a message which will bring this about. It is:

1) Consecration of all hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the New Adam, the New Eve.

2) Recitation of the daily rosary as a family and privately.

3) Reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

4) Observation of the First Saturday devotion.

And He says:

Matthew 12:46-50

The true kinsfolk of Jesus

He was still speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him. But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?’ And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’

Jesus speaks: Now I unfold a mystery to you.

Unless men listen and open their hearts, they will not hear the working of the Spirit within them.

I have revealed the secrets given here in the feeling heart of this woman.

In one moment, the batting of an eye, the dropping of a pin, I can reveal to you such secrets of the kingdom. It is in the heart.

I am the Initiator.

From an in-depth "mind" study I may reveal some secrets, but the soul that most intimately knows Me, knows Me in the inner workings of the heart as I grant great grace to that soul in deep communion with that person.

The revelations I have given here are meant to be used and studied when at all possible in an atmosphere of intimate love with Me, after the reception of the Eucharist, before the tabernacle, in silent contemplation and prayer. I work intently in people reciting the rosaries using the meditations from Our Hearts.

This is a promise I make to you. Great grace is granted in which I act in the soul whenever these revelations are used and the Meditations from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are used.

The determining factor on your part is that you put yourself in the proper disposition to let Me work in your heart. Come in a spirit of deep love to your Lover, wanting Me to act on your soul.

Oh, the men study and study and they miss My love affair with them.

I am the Initiator, I act on the soul, I open the minds and the hearts.

Get down off your thrones and quit thinking you are in control.

Quit thinking you are God, that you put in time and you produce the results.


I lived a quiet LIFE.

You can build buildings to the summits of the sky, brick by brick, with great precision, but you miss the boat, men, with your bags of money stashed in banks and stocks --





Matthew 11:25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

Jesus speaks: I SWEAT BLOOD!




MY THRONE not of gold and silver -

I give you My Mass, I give you My Body and Blood, I give you My grace.

You measure like men of the world and I cry to you, lighten up - I am the Initiator - I pour down the grace.

You control your minds and your hearts, you are rigid, stiffnecked and blind.

See Mary on the building - God has sent her with a message.

Insight into the mysteries is given by following My direction.

To the merest children I give insight into the mysteries of the rosary.

I act in the heart, I illuminate the minds.


I say to the mountains move and they move, to the grass, grow and it grows, to the sun, shine and it shines. I am God.

Messenger: Jesus’ love is tender. He comes as a little baby. He wants us to be children, not "know it alls". He wants to be the Bridegroom of our souls. He is the Initiator, we are the brides. The Mass is the great act of love in which God gives Himself to us. It is a communal act of uniting most intimately with the Bridegroom of our souls. We are not the Bridegroom, He is. we must be soft and supple as the bride. What does the Scripture say:

Ephesians 5:21-30

The morals of the home

Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives should be subject to their husbands as to the Lord, since, as Christ is head of the Church and saves the whole body, so is a husband the head of his wife; and as the Church is subject to Christ, so should wives be to their husbands, in everything. Husbands should love their wives, just as Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her to make her holy by washing her in cleansing water with a form of words, so that when he took the Church to himself she would be glorious, with no speck or wrinkle or anything like that, but holy and faultless. In the same way, husbands must love their wives as they love their own bodies; for a man to love his wife is for him to love himself. A man never hates his own body, but he feeds it and looks after it; and that is the way Christ treats the Church, because we are parts of his Body.

Messenger: What about the Scripture that says:

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands should love their wives, just as Christ loved the Church...

Messenger: We are not in control of our relationship with God. That is part of the problem, men want to control this. They have to be like the blushing bride that surrenders to the Bridegroom. They have to be childlike. It isn’t as with a history book where we study about God and stay focused on this heartless knowledge in our head.

Always when I read about Jesus in the messages He gives, my heart is open and I am waiting for Him as Initiator, as the Bridegroom to possess my soul. I don’t have a solution, I don’t know the ending, it is a love experience with my Bridegroom and He is writing the story. I am the bride, I am open, my heart is desirous, I am available to Him.

And I am a woman, one who knew of nursing babies, feeling feelings, changing diapers, looking at wounds and saying "ah", and feeling how my children felt when they left for school. I felt if they were warm enough, tired, hungry.

This is how I am with Jesus. I am empty. I want Him to make Himself known to me. I didn’t have a lot of knowledge. I didn’t know where the books in the Bible were when I started sitting in front of the tabernacle in 1990. I was looking for love from Jesus. Nobody loved me the way my soul wanted to be loved. I craved to be with Jesus. I wanted my heart filled. I wanted the craving I felt inside satisfied. I thirsted for love. I sat with Him there before the tabernacle and He filled me. He revealed Himself to me as His bride. He was the Bridegroom of my soul and I his bride. I knew little, little theology. I didn’t understand the Scriptures, but as I became more intimately united to Him, just sitting there in silence and going to Him, I cried. I was so filled with love. I found what I was looking for all my life. He wrote the knowledge of Himself on my soul. He wrote all this knowledge in the intimate moments I spent with Him at Mass after Communion and before the tabernacle. He revealed Himself to me through the feeling part of my being, deep in my heart and my soul. I acquired this knowledge of Him in intimacies with Him that I had especially around the Eucharist.

Books are very good. Jesus has written these revelations to be read as love letters from Him in order to have an intimate relationship with Him. He promises grace to grow in a deep intimate relationship with Him if we use His revelations and let Him work as the Initiator on our souls. We must consecrate ourselves to Jesus’ Heart and Mary’s Heart.

Jesus speaks: Be gentle, My men, the more you use these revelations with all your hearts to develop a tender loving union with Me, the more you let go and busy yourself about our love affair, the more you let go and let me lead with my grace, the more you will acquire knowledge of Me in your hearts.

I am the Bridegroom, you are the bride.

I want My priests to be My spouses.
I do not want unfaithful spouses.
I want them to teach the people to be spouses of Christ.

I am a LOVER.
I want priests praying the rosary and meditating on the mysteries.

I want you to obey the Lady of Fatima. She is the Queen of Peace. I am the Bridegroom of your souls.

Revelation 12:1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.

Revelation 21:1-4

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'

Genesis 3:19

By the sweat of your face
will you earn your food,
until you return to the ground,
as you were taken from it.
For dust you are
and to dust you shall return.’

Revelation 18:19-24

They threw dust on their heads and said, with tears and groans:

   ‘Mourn, mourn for this great city
   whose lavish living has made a fortune
   for every owner of a sea-going ship,
   ruined within a single hour.

‘Now heaven, celebrate her downfall, and all you saints, apostles and prophets: God has given judgement for you against her.’
     Then a powerful angel picked up a boulder like a great millstone, and as he hurled it into the sea, he said, ‘That is how the great city of Babylon is going to be hurled down, never to be seen again.

   Never again in you
   will be heard
      the song of harpists and minstrels,
   the music of flute and trumpet;
   never again will craftsmen of every skill
      be found in you
   or the sound of the handmill be heard;
never again
      will shine the light of the lamp in you,
   never again will be heard in you
   the voices of bridegroom and bride.
   Your traders were the princes
      of the earth,
    all the nations were led astray
      by your sorcery.

In her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and all the blood that was ever shed on earth.

Revelation 19:1-9

Songs of victory in heaven

After this I heard what seemed to be the great sound of a huge crowd in heaven, singing, ‘Alleluia! Salvation and glory and power to our God! He judges fairly, he punishes justly, and he has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her prostitution; he has avenged the blood of his servants which she shed.’ And again they sang, "Alleluia! The smoke of her will rise for ever and ever.’ Then the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures threw themselves down and worshipped God seated on his throne, and they cried, ‘Amen, Alleluia.’
     Then a voice came from the throne; it said, ‘Praise our God, you servants of his and those who fear him, small and great alike.’ And I heard what seemed to be the voices of a huge crowd, like the sound of the ocean or the great roar of thunder, answering, ‘Alleluia! The reign of the Lord our God Almighty has begun; let us be glad and joyful and give glory to God, because this is the time for the marriage of the Lamb. His bride is ready, and she has been able to dress herself in dazzling while linen, because her linen is made of the good deeds of the saints.’ The angel said, ‘Write this, "Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb," ’ and he added, ‘These words of God are true.’

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel when I am troubled with a problem and instead of listening and trying to understand you give me a solution and expect me to take action on your solution?
