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.

Jesus speaks: Cover your face, oh Jerusalem, for the land I have filled with milk and honey, and you smite Me.

You hide your face from the truth and mask your face with lies. Those I send you shame and block their gentle tongues, for you reason, "Oh, would that it had been me He chose and not this one."

Jealousy consumes your soul and My Heart cries, for I send a messenger because I am generous.

But you look to the idle pleasures of the earth and miss the warning I give because of My love.

Isaiah 50:6

I have offered my back
  to those who struck me,
my cheeks to those
  who plucked my beard;
I have not turned my face away
from insult and spitting.

Psalm 97:7

Shame on all who serve images,
who pride themselves on their idols;
bow down to him, all you gods!

Psalm 83:16

Shame written all over their faces,
let them seek your name, Yahweh!

Genesis 2:25

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

Genesis 3:10

'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.'

Genesis 32:31

Jacob named the place Peniel, 'Because I have seen God face to face,' he said, 'and have survived.'

Revelation 22:4

they will see him face to face, and his name will be written on their foreheads.

Jesus speaks: Oh, open the skies and let the bellowing cry of the Father be heard.

Put on Christ in All Your Ways

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 9, 1994 7:00 a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. He who abides in Me will have the light of life.

God the Father speaks: My gift to you is My Son. This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.

Jesus speaks: Come and partake with Me at My Mass. My Mass is a glorious event. I am eager for you to come and worship.

What are the ways of the Lord? To you I give My love. If you forever focus on this love you will be right in your ways. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, and I long to teach you My truths. To know Me and My way, you must spend time with Me and study what I am teaching you. Every minute I am teaching you some lessons. It may just be acceptance. It may be union with Me. It may be doing what you are doing for God, for My Will. You are constantly being taught. You are tried and tested in fire that you may learn the ways of the Lord.

My ways are the ways of righteousness. My ways are the ways of truth. No man comes to The Father except through Me. You must learn to follow My example in your living. You seek first the will of The Father and then you do it.

If you are to have peace and joy in your hearts, you must follow the path that I am directing you on. You do not falter. You follow Me and I lead the way. Be in union with Me to know My ways. You don't for a few hours worship and adore Me and pray to Me, then put Me away and go off and act as the world wants you to!

By your example you teach others mighty lessons. By your example others are being taught your ways. Are your ways rooted in Me? If your ways are constantly My ways, you teach My lessons. Strive to be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect. Strive to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. Where I trod you likewise must walk. My life is the prescription by which you live.

But My ways I make known to you in these letters. If you read and reread these letters and listen to them spoken to you, My life becomes ever real. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, and I live in you! If you focus on My words here in this book, My life will radiate from your very soul. My life cannot and will not ever be contained! My life is mighty and active. It finds its launching pad in your hearts.

Your heart is the key to My life within you. Make ready a path for Me. Open your hearts wide. Come and sit with Me awhile in silence. Be taught by the Master. I wait for you at every moment. Remember all you do here is useless if it does not have its origin in Me. Come unto Me, My little ones, and I give you the secrets of My life within your breast.

You will become My warriors in a cold war. Love will pour out of your heart to your brothers and you will touch the hearts of the coldest man. "Me?," you say. Yes, you have mighty power when I dwell deep in your heart.

You needn't ask, "How do I act here?" You act according to how I direct you. Your ways become My ways. There is a sense of acting immediately in My ways. You become Me more and more to this cold world, as you ever more let Me possess you. This is what I call you to do, to put on Christ in all your ways. My actions flow from your very soul.

Keep these letters by your side and read My Blue Book. My life will grow in your hearts and you will be acting as I act toward your brothers. No one can ever contain My life alive in your hearts.

The world goes on its merry way. But is it merry? The world is in a state of numbness. People think they need to operate the way they do. If they could stop and look at how silly are most of the treasures they are holding on to. If they would see the sickness! But they continue, and fall into the ways of the world. The ways of the world are ever changing. What was bad yesterday is good today. That should tell you something is wrong there!

My ways are direct and steadfast and never changing. They are constant and without error. They are peace and joy. They are the way to follow. The world is sick. Do not follow where they walk or you will be sick also. You cannot be part God and part world. This world is a mess. Your lives are a mess when you try to make your lives make sense to the world.

Make ready a path. The Son of Man is coming and His ways He has imparted to you daily in these letters. Do not tarry. Take your hearts to God. Pray to the Holy Spirit. Ask for all I have to give you. Live in Christ. Let Him permeate your very soul. You are My Body. You are Christ, living within you, in the world. They stop and take notice, for your ways are the truth. Your ways are peace and gentleness, love and kindness. Your ways are constant and never changing. Let Me live in your heart and operate in your soul. Be My life to the world and walk the path of glory in a darkened world.

For you trod where He trod and He lives in you and you are His chosen ones.

Alleluia. Praise the Lord. Alleluia.

Excerpt from February 28, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: The Father spoke to me, August 20, 1997: "This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased, listen to Him."

Jesus speaks: And in between, the unfolding of God's gifts is detested by so many, for they did not understand and believe in a pure heart.

See the Radiance in My Face (excerpt)

God's Blue Book I Cover

October 23, 1993 - 8:00a.m.

Jesus speaks: My dear child, I come to you as the brightest light, as a light that shines in the deepest darkness. I come with fire in My eyes and My Heart. It is on fire for love of you. If you knew, you would see the radiance in My face at every moment. You must keep coming and just sitting. Long times alone with Me. No distraction. Do you see the fire in My eyes? My eyes sparkle. My Heart is on fire. Keep this picture in your mind. My face glows. It is like nothing you have ever seen. Energy is emitted by My presence and when you recall the image I am now planting in your mind. My face glows and energy is radiating from Me. This, child, is power. When you recall this picture you have an instant energizer. I am the God of all the nations. I am He Who built all the worlds and all the people therein. My power is this radiance. It is endless. It is only I. Nothing else on the face of this earth has this power. See Me glowing in your mind. The glowing from My eyes. See Me on fire with love of you. Feel the fullness in your breast. Feel Me in your chest.

My Kingdom Is At Hand (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 6, 1994 5:00 a.m.

Messenger Notes: At 6:30 a.m. I saw a vision of children, two adults by their side, walking together in a group. One adult in front was wearing a scarf on a tweed coat. She had brown hair which was curled. She turned and had her hand on a child. She was leading them. The other adult was in the back. There were about 20 to 25 kids on a street. They all had their coats and they had just turned the corner.

Excerpt from October 4, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: On June 8, 1995, I had two visions at the Falmouth farm in Kentucky.

I include the visions here exactly as they appear in my notebook.

This excerpt is directly from my notebook as I wrote June 9, 1995, the day after the two visions at Falmouth, Kentucky.

Vision from June 9, 1995

Messenger: The Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains Blessed Sacrament Chapel partially burned on June 8, 1999.

It was there I received the Prayer Before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

It was there I saw the vision of Father Carter with his hand on the church.

Vision of Father Carter with his hand on the church.

It was there I saw St. Margaret Mary appear with a white book.

The Blessed Sacrament was exposed so much in that chapel when I was younger.

We called it the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.

Jesus gave tender love letters in God’s Blue Book to lead the people to Him in adoration before the tabernacle and to Holy Communion. He wants people to stay 20 minutes after Communion to be with Him.

I always wondered what the two visions I received at Falmouth, Kentucky, meant. After the flooding at Falmouth, Kentucky, I thought the vision was linked to this.

One day after Mass at the Cathedral in the afternoon as I was leaving, I noticed the chapel had burned on June 8, 1999, and I remembered the vision I had at Falmouth, Kentucky.

I include parts from the daily messages of March 6, 1999 and June 8, 1999.

The message of June 8, 1999 was put out the same day of the fire at the Cathedral chapel.

Excerpt from May 19, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: Last year on Ascension Thursday I received the message, "Come Out of Your Tombs", that appeared September 24, 1998.

Between Ascension Thursday and Pentecost, I received the vision of the open door.

goldlamb.gif (63854 bytes)

Messenger: On Pentecost I received 3 visions:

  1. I saw granules of dirt moving. Then I saw a balcony.
  2. I saw a person outside shopping for cards, some were white, some black.
  3. I saw a big dark skinned woman in the foreground with white pearls. She was running the pearls through her fingers in front of her.

    What was behind her were much smaller figures. They had a garment on like Christ wears on the cross. They were dark skinned.

Because sin has entered the world, I struggle with dealing with its effects on the family, the Movement, the Church and the world.

I feel our struggle is with the dirt, it keeps us focused on ourselves and the bottom of the mountain.

Yesterday at Mass He lifted me up and gave me experiences and took me into the depth of His Heart. This was "the top of the mountain experience", life in Him, the balcony.

I struggle between these two. My heart craves and wants Him. I want this union with Him in the deepest degree for all eternity.

I am imperfect, my brothers are imperfect. I have to deal with these imperfections to get to this union with Him.

I experience a tremendous battle after I see and experience heaven and want it so much and am here in this imperfect body and have to work through my imperfections and the imperfections of others and deal with sin in the world and all the ways it has contaminated God’s children.

I feel the black and white cards represent a choice to do God’s will or our will. I think it was the day of the Falmouth flood on which He talked about picking white or black berries. Choosing white berries is picking the way which is most likely His will. Choosing black berries is doing things opposed to His will. I feel the cards were another example of doing or not doing God’s will.

Concerning the African or what I think is African, I don’t know. I know we need to correspond with foreign countries to get prayer chapters started, especially in churches.

Jesus said to look for persons that will begin the prayer chapters in churches and take the Imprimatur material to schools. But He doesn’t want them giving personal theories, messages, or other visionaries' comments. He wants prayer chapters in churches, to pray for priests and the renewal of the Church and the world, a renewal centered in consecration. He also wants us to reach the school children. He wants us to make contacts, especially with willing priests and sisters who would pray the prayers themselves and try to spread them.

Messenger: I saw St. Margaret Mary with a white book.

I saw the vision of Father Carter with his hand on the church.

Excerpt from January 16, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: Before the 17th meeting in January of 1995, I had received the following vision when at Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Chains. It was either late December, 1994 or early January, 1995. I drew the picture in the notebook.

It looks as follows:

when at Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Chains

The face was a flesh colored, but I could not see the features. The gown was white with a square neck.

The next day Jesus told me it was Father Carter. This vision along with another vision I had received about the same time appeared on the 17th book in January 1995.

The other vision was a church that looked similar to our church in China, Indiana, and in the front of the church was a gigantic Host with tremendous light coming forth from it.

On the cover was a Shepherd and the world.

The vision of the church looked like this:


There was a message at this meeting. The message said that THE POWER is in the Eucharist.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How has praying together helped our oneness?
