You Must Offer the Masses for Healing

Messenger: I received a message November 3, 1997. We were instructed to pray for healing at all Masses.

Chapter 12 Revelation begins:

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.

Messenger: Verse 3 says:

Revelation 12:3

Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet.

Messenger: I have been told by Jesus to ask you to read the entire account Chapter 12 of Revelation.

Revelation 12:10-12:

Revelation 12:10-12

Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming--because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'

Messenger: Revelation 12:17:

Revelation 12:17

Then the dragon was enraged with the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, who obey God's commandments and have in themselves the witness of Jesus.

Messenger: On November 4, 5, 6, 1997, it became increasingly difficult to offer these Masses for healing.

For me there is much distraction and confusion before Mass daily.

We are at war against evil forces that wish to devour our children.

Angels and devils are real.

Mary speaks: The devil is real, my children, and he attacks your thoughts. He uses your memory; he uses the seeds of evil planted in your hearts.

Your children are being piped evil every day on the television and by your world.

My children, the ancient serpent, the devil, wishes your souls. You are at battle.

Include the Prayer of St. Michael here.

Prayer to St. Michael

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Mary speaks: I ask you my children, to read Hebrews 8:1-13.

Include here Hebrews 9:11-14.

Hebrews 9:11-14

But now Christ has come, as the high priest of all the blessings which were to come. He has passed through the greater, the more perfect tent, not made by human hands, that is, not of this created order; and he has entered the sanctuary once and for all, taking with him not the blood of goats and bull calves, but his own blood, having won an eternal redemption. The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkled on those who have incurred defilement, may restore their bodily purity. How much more will the blood of Christ, who offered himself, blameless as he was, to God through the eternal Spirit, purify our conscience from dead actions so that we can worship the living God.

Mary speaks: Continue to read Hebrews 9:15-28.

Revelation 1:5-6:

Revelation 1:5-6

... and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the First-born from the dead, the highest of earthly kings. He loves us and has washed away our sins with his blood, and made us a Kingdom of Priests to serve his God and Father; to him, then, be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen

Mary speaks: Revelation 5:9-10:

Revelation 5:9-10

They sang a new hymn:
You are worthy to take the scroll
and to break its seals,
because you were sacrificed,
    and with your blood
you bought people for God
of every race, language, people and nation
and made them a line of kings and priests for God,
to rule the world.

Mary speaks: I speak to you clearly my children.

I wish the Holy Spirit Novena to be printed immediately in booklet form as is planned. I wish the novena to be prayed daily by my apostles in the Shepherds of Christ. It is most important that you ask hourly, if possible, that the Blood of Jesus be spread on your families and on the Church and the world.

I warned of the acceleration in the problems you will have.

You cannot give up heart, my shepherds. The devil will press down more than ever in your thoughts.

When you are hearing in your mind accusations against yourselves and your brothers, you must pray to St. Michael.

Here are some satanic words: you are not lovable; God is angered at you; you have not done enough; you are not loved; you were not loved; they did this to me...

My children, the devil wishes your souls. Hell is complete isolation from others; hell is hatred.

The ways of the devil are division. He wishes you to feel divided in your hearts from your brothers.

There are seeds of jealousy, self hatred, insecurity, and argumentation within your hearts. You are filled with unmet needs and unforgiveness.

Brother will turn on brother as the devil becomes stronger and attacks your thoughts and emotions.

You must ask yourselves what do you wish in your hearts. Do you love this person? Do you wish to pray for the renewal of the Church and the world at Mass?

Satan will attack all shepherds before Mass. My people, take my little ones to the Eucharist. My Son, Jesus, is the Bread of Life.

You must pray for the priests that they are holy priests and that they consecrate their hearts to Our pure and holy Hearts.

You must reach the hungry countries, the bishops--especially in foreign lands-- with the priestly newsletter.

Money is needed to reach them. Reach out to priests in underdeveloped areas where peoples' hearts are open and willing to pray.

You need priests, the holiest priests, offering Mass with the most pure hearts dwelling in Our Hearts.

The most abundant graces will be released from the Mass when priests are dwelling in Our Hearts offering the Holy Sacrifice. Grace will flood the earth.

Messenger: Men must die under the cross, they must approach the altar of sacrifice and die to the ways that are not like Him. They must die to the will that is not His will. He did the will of His Father to His death on the cross.

Did we learn the lesson under the tree? Eve sinned, we must die to the self, the self that is not likened to Him.

The way to get into the depth of ecstasy is to be in peace, in one's heart with all, loving and being connected to all. We experience great intercessory power when we are feeling great peace and connection to all. God may grant even greater graces when He has allowed us to be tested and tried at Mass. However, I have experienced the greatest ecstasies when I have been able to not focus on myself and my imperfections and the imperfections of others and be, as it were, at the top of the mountain, so united in the Mass that is taking place.

Mary speaks: The devil will become stronger, attacking my shepherds in prayer. You must dwell in my pure Heart. You must realize Satan will use innocent remarks before prayer and Mass to divide hearts and create confusion.

You must reach the priests with the consecration and the priestly newsletter.

Satan will become stronger and stronger in these last times. He wants souls, my children. He is real and he is battling in this world to devour the young, my children.

Priests must preach the Ten Commandments in the churches. They must tell the youth to pray to St. Michael. The prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual are so powerful for the youth.

Beginning Junior Shepherds of Christ chapters will help guard your children through the prayers and the rosary.

My children must pray the rosary. I beg you to circulate the new children's rosary book to the schools.

My shepherds, Satan wants you stopped. You must pray more fervently, even in tears. I beckon you to pray.

Satan will attempt to create more division in your thoughts. You must pray to die to your imperfections at Mass.

My shepherds, I implore you. Purity is found in dwelling in Our Hearts.

Ephesians 1:20-23:

Ephesians 1:20-23 work in Christ, the power which he exercised in raising him from the dead and enthroning him at his right hand, in heaven, far above every principality, ruling force, power or sovereignty, or any other name that can be named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. He has put all things under his feet, and made him, as he is above all things, the head of the Church; which is his Body, the fullness of him who is filled, all in all.

Messenger: Colossians 2:9-15:

Colossians 2:9-15

In him, in bodily form, lives divinity in all its fullness, and in him you too find your own fulfilment, in the one who is the head of every sovereignty and ruling force.

In him you have been circumcised, with a circumcision performed, not by human hand, but by the complete stripping of your natural self. This is circumcision according to Christ. You have been buried with him by your baptism; by which, too, you have been raised up with him through your belief in the power of God who raised him from the dead. You were dead, because you were sinners and uncircumcised in body: he has brought you to life with him, he has forgiven us every one of our sins.

He has wiped out the record of our debt to the Law, which stood against us; he has destroyed it by nailing it to the cross; and he has stripped the sovereignties and the ruling forces, and paraded them in public, behind him in his triumphal procession.

Mary speaks: My children, in Him you will die to the ways of the world and live in His ways. You must ask to be spread with the Blood of Jesus.

Message of December 22, 1996
(Excerpt from the Apostles Manual - p. 203)

Jesus speaks: And the moon will be covered with blood. It was the Blood of the Lamb and it poured forth on a sinful world to cleanse them of their sin, and I give you My Body and Blood in the Mass and I am ignored.

Messenger: The Word became flesh and dwelt among us...

John talks about the light. John was given Mary as his Mother. He knew she was the Lady of Light and he was a son of the light.

John 1:1-10:

In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.

Through Him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being except through him.
What has come into being in him was life,
life that was the light of men;
and light shines in darkness,

and darkness could not overpower it.

A man came, sent by God.
His name was John.
He came as a witness,
to bear witness to the light,
so that everyone might believe through him.
He was not the light,
he was to bear witness to the light.

The Word was the real light
that gives light to everyone;
he was coming into the world.
He was in the world
that had come into being through him,

and the world did not recognise him.

Messenger: Jesus is alive in the Holy Eucharist this day. He is ignored. He is treated with great indifference.

Many are not even aware that God is truly present. Many do not even know what is going on. This is His lamenting cry from the tabernacle.

John 1:11-14:

He came to his own
and his own people did not accept him.
But to those who did accept him

he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believed in his name

who were born not from human stock
or human desire
or human will
but from God himself.
The Word became flesh,
he lived among us,
and we saw His glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
    as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.

Messenger: We, His people, have not yet seen His glory in its fullness.

Until we go to the womb of Mary, we will not be children of light to the degree God desires. We are walking in partial darkness. She told us at Fatima what we must do to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart, when men will see with the light that will be brighter than seven suns.

(End of Message of December 22, 1996)

Message of December 19, 1996
(Excerpt from Apostles Manual - p. 202)

Jesus speaks: And the light shone in the darkness and the darkness grasped it not, but to as many as responded, they became the children of the light and from them His life flowed into the hearts that were cold and dark and slowly, very slowly, the light began to steal across the darkened sky and the moon was covered with blood. The blood was the Blood of the Lamb. The blood represented the Blood He shed to give us life.

(End of Message of December 19, 1996)

Jesus speaks: My children, I am with you in greater testing. You will be taught to depend entirely on Me. You will cry out in pain. The imperfections will surface, you must be aware of the workings of Satan in your thoughts to divide you. You must read the Blue Book messages and realize how immensely I love you. Do not give in to any thought of self-hate. Love yourselves. Thank God continually. You must go to your hearts and focus on love. What do you want today? Do not focus on negative thoughts that will harm our union and divide you from others. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus so that you do not worry what others think. You must focus on helping to save souls.

I love you so much.

I am with you in the testing and the trials, watching you. Use the rosary meditations. They will help you.

I love you, Jesus.

January 3, 1999  -  Feast of the Epiphany   Second Message

Satan Will Attack Your Thoughts. Do Not Be Prideful.

Mary speaks: My children, the devil will strike at your head and you will struggle with pride. Many feel, "No one can tell me anything." They will not listen to authority. Many priests do not recognize me as their Mother. I have a very weak role in their lives. My womb is grace-filled, and blessed is the fruit of my womb. I give to you, my children, your spiritual womb--my Immaculate Heart. My Heart is pure, you will dwell in purity in my sinless Heart.

You will struggle with purity. You are the tainted children of Eve, I am your spiritual Mother.

There is that constant battle in which Satan talks in your head and feeds you garbage about past experiences to get you divided in your hearts. Many arguments are begun because of pride, "Who are you telling me... I know everything." If one is in authority you must respect this authority. If another speaks, you can listen and learn. You should ignore what is said if it is untruth. If one is filled with lies (untruths), excuse yourself after a short moment and leave. You should not argue with people. You should not argue to defend a point. Many times it is Satan trying to bait you and what a catch you are. Feed the hungry, the ones that are docile and open, the ones that are thirsty. There are many people who want to pray. Many of the rich are absorbed in their wealth. Go to the humble and lowly. I do not intend to demean the rich. America, the land of plenty, is rich in many things and its people are not praying as they should. I appear to ask you to pray at 6:30 p.m. the Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary and to have candle rosaries, especially in churches and in families. Oh my children, be pure in heart and pray.

I am your Mother.

Be Thankful For God's Gifts

Jesus speaks: My children, when you suffer great losses you appreciate the little things more.

Be thankful everyday for the gifts I give you.

A person losing another in terminal sickness can be led to pray very deeply and often.

Hardships help lead many to God.

Be thankful today for My gifts. Be thankful for My grace and the Eucharist.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do you feel we can fight against Satan before Mass and prayer?
