December 16, 2004

Mysticism ---

Messenger:      I searched for that which pleased me and
                    my heart was an empty shell - for
                    having known You in ecstasies I knew
                    what my soul was searching for.

                        I spoke to many to tell them and they did not
                    understand how You had opened Your Heart
                    to me and shown me the treasure there in.

                        But God it is for me to speak of You as
                    You have revealed Yourself to me and to search
                    this barren land looking for one to understand
                    what You have allowed me to taste.

                        Your priests were too busy to even listen and
                    in my effort to express, as You asked, that
                    which was so real to me, I looked like I
                    was odd, prideful and out of place to any
                    hierarchy in the Church or most people of 
                    this earth for that matter.

                        Contemplation of the soul is the root of
                    ecstasies, but it isn't me acting at all
                    it is You God acting on my soul.

                        People do not even understand the profound-
                    ness and hidden insight of this prayer --

   

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.

      

December 16, 2004 message continues

Messenger:   but I received it right before lent began in
                    1998 when You gave me the Spouse of the
                    Lamb book.

                        So shallow can be man's grasp for the
                    things of God and it can be reduced to mere
                    lessons as many reach and to treat You like 
                    one they are learning about in a history book.

                        But, God, You opened up the heavens,
                    day after day, when I received the writings
                    of the Mass Book and I touched the ineffable
                    God, but in the pride of many men ---
                    who would listen.

                        The next year (December 17, 1996), after such
                    ecstasies accounted in the Mass Book I, to the
                    day --- the Virgin Mary dressed in rainbow
                    dress appeared on the building in Clearwater
                    reminding us all of the Covenant God made
                    with man after the big flood --- but she was
                    ignored and the fact she appeared for over 7
                    years is still ignored by those who needed
                    to take notice.

                        But the act of a man would not change
                    this special presence of Our Lady in
                    this chosen spot if God so
                    desires it and so today (December 17, 2004) I
                    deliver this message from God for the
                    world ---

Mary speaks:       --- a message sent from God
                          to men.

Jesus speaks:       I sent you My precious letters of love
                        in God's Blue Book --- long before Mary
                        appeared and you ignored them. They were
                        dated for you My chosen ones on how men
                        can review how I, the Son of God, tried
                        to send personal letters to you at the end
                        of the second millennium and there are a few
                        of My letters now in used book stores.

                            Silly men of the earth, if I came to the
                        earth and died for you, why in the state
                        your world is in would I not give you
                            the building of the 2 Hearts.

                           A garden I planted in Clearwater, Florida
                        and I appeared and still appear -- you senseless
                        men, how you have offended your God
                        when such signs have been given.

                            When the clouds show and the sky
                        looks dark in the day people say ---
                        oh it looks like rain and they know the
                        signs of the seasons, a sick dog, an old
                        lady near death ---

                            You are not so wise about the death
                        of the souls of your own children and the
                        Mother of the Children of the earth
                        came to warn her children and you
                        shot her head off --- again you
                        even ignore that sign as a
                        sign of the destructive ways of the
                        children of the earth --- little and no
                        recompense was made to the owners of
                        the building to your God who sent
                        her there ---

                            Oh I cry to you to wake up before it
                        is too late.

                            Satan is a prowling lion prowling
                        the earth looking for souls to devour
                        and take them to hell --- Oh do you
                        see the sign of the worm in the
                        fruit --- a worm goes into the apple and if
                        not stopped eats the very pulp of the
                        fruit away ---

                            Where are you going My earth with
                        your focus on the present moment and
                        the sexual promiscuous banners
                        all over your towns,
                        in your mailboxes, computers, televisions,
                        movies, music ---
                        You are bombarded by the works
                        of satan and those who help him do his
                        work ---

                            What about your own enemies, the
                        weaknesses you have toward jealousy and
                        pride, lust, etc. because of your fallen
                        human nature.

                            A tree stands high above the forest
                        it reaches for the sun.

                            You planted a little dwarf palm
                        I use it for My mouth and My eye is
                        one that is large and sees it all ---
                        My garden now is majorly thwarted,
                        torn up, look at My site in Florida ---

  

    

December 16, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:       When I died on the cross, My body
                        was mutilated and covered with Blood ---
                        only to the Christian is this a pretty
                        site ---
  

                                    To those who believed --- I planted
                        a garden here in Clearwater and few
                        really cared the Mother of God appeared
                        here, but today I tell you these things

                            1) Your God is offended how this
                                   magnificent gift was treated

                            2) You need to help make recompense
                                   tonight for this deed done

                            3) Your site looks sick, but the
                                   fruit is here, My Books,
                                   My letters, Our Message
                                   are the fruits your world needs to
                                   ward off the evil serpent the
                                   devil

                            4) I have written ---
                                 I have appeared
                                 My fruit is a fruitful vine in the
                                    messages, books and videos in
                                    My store here.

                            5) Tell Me --- that you do not recognize
                                    the apparition of the Virgin
                                    Mary live on the Nursing
                                    Home Videos and Discs ---

                            6) Why are you so down in the mouth ---
                                    crest fallen --- God has delivered
                                    His message to you

                            7) I have given to you My Movement
                                    I have given to you this gift

                            8) You who are so focused on yourselves
                                    after all I have shown you ---
                                    What do I do to get you My faithful
                                     ones to help Me in this time of
                                     need for your earth

                            9) My Blue Book writings must be circulated
                                     study them --- My words are your
                                     truth --- read them over and over
                                      again --- some read every letter
                                      and they do not believe and need
                                      to be told again and again they
                                      are real --- from Me ---
                                                        from Jesus the Sacred
                                                                    Heart to the earth

                            You will not learn from My letters if
                                you read them without faith ---
                                I won't work in you
                                this way to get insights --- you have
                                    blocked Me by your
                                    lack of openness to My message ---

                            A night watchman tries to see in the
                                  night ---

                            The person who lacks faith won't
                                see with an attitude like that ---
                                they are like a night watchman
                                with a blind fold around
                                his eyes -- he sees nothing

                            A good night watchman has a desire to see
                                in the darkness -- he is ready
                                to enter in and see even though
                                the night is black so he can
                                guard the people ---

                            You are so weird in your ways ---
                                you think you know so much and
                                I in My desire to show you can
                                  lift the veil and you will
                                  see what you could have never learned
                                    by yourself in one million books ---

                              I have this to say
                                    I am God ---
                                    open your eyes ---
                                    the devil is stealing your hearts
                                    the devil is stealing your children

                                    You wear rags on your eyes ---
                                    You plug up your ears ---
                                    You are earthy ---
                                        rooted in the ways and things
                                        of the earth ---

                                    Oh blind ones Listen to Me ---
                                    This is My Newsletter to reach
                                        My priests ---

                                    Circulate My Blue Book Writings
                                        My letters of love ---

                                    You are falling really short of
                                        providing the real fruit ---
                                        you don't even try any more ---

                                    A man asked a person in the area
                                        where he could find good fruit ---
                                         I sent him to My Building
                                            of the two Hearts ---

                                    Another called on the phone ---

                                    Another hungry man came to
                                        you ---
                                    You gave him old black shriveled
                                        prunes that made him sick

                                    He asked for the fruit of the
                                        gifts I sent ---
                                        You were up all night painting
                                            your nails and nursing your
                                            old wounds --- old emotional
                                            wounds ---

                                    Oh what do I do to spread
                                        the message ---

                                    My house in Florida is a
                                        garden with fresh, juicy
                                        fruit for the soul ---

                                    Your world is sinking fast ---
                                        My House is built on stone.

                                    To those who have no vision ---
                                        no fruit will grow ---

                                    You have eyes wrapped with rags and
                                        you lack faith ---

                                        open your eyes and look at the world ---
                                            Whence will you see Me hanging
                                                on the cross ---
                                            I died for the sinners of the
                                                world today ---

                                            I died in their hearts while you counted
                                                your fruit cans and thought
                                                fruit came in cans at
                                                the store ---
                                              My babies are dying, they are
                                                loosing their soul ---

                                        When I called to you and your mother
                                            appeared ---
                                            you said no ---

                                    HELP  ME
                            NOW

                                    Souls are at stake ---

                                Satan is real ---

                            He is prowling this earth
                                trying to get your
                                    soul

                            I DIED FOR
                       
MY Precious
                                 Souls -------
                                I am Jesus ----
                                  Savior

  

  

December 16, 2004 message continues

Messenger:        Mary is still there at her spot
                            in Clearwater, Florida.

                        And she appeared majorly to lead
                            her children to the messages
                            in God's Blue Books
                            and there's been a real lessening
                            on the part of the Shepherds of
                            Christ people in doing their part
                            to carry the message to the world.

                        And she says:
                            I tell you to go back and to
                              review the original message given
                              on the image card December 19, 1996.

                            I further want the Red Rosary book
                                and the rosary meditations
                                to be circulated and used by
                                my children at the site.

                            Let me tell you a story ---
                                there was a tire
                                and a man drove over some glass -

  

  

December 16, 2004 message continues

 Mary speaks:          the car sat for awhile
                                and when the man returned
                                to his car, the tire was dead
                                flat. He could not go
                                anywhere.

                            Further, the car was in a garage
                                and no one could get to him.

                            He soon found a solution ---
                                pumped up the tire,
                                had the tire plugged
                                and never had a problem
                                after that.

                            You have reached the dead flat
                                stage ---

                            The enthusiasm in your heart
                                was on a decline when
                                my image was beheaded ---
                                but with that
                                many have failed to see
                                the significance of my
                                apparition for 7 years
                                on the building.

                            Jesus came and died on the
                                cross for the sake of souls.

                            I appeared and delivered a
                                message from God the Father.

                            The message is still the same,
                                one person destroying my
                                image face has not altered
                                the message.

                            John the Baptist was beheaded
                                but the work he did continued.

                            Only you can give into Satan
                                and his adverse ways.

                            Why base your actions on those
                                of the perverted ---
                                Look to the Lord
                                  for your gifts and instruction.

                            Embrace the gift given to you
                                and do the work for which
                                it was intended.

                            I am Mary your Mother ---
                                I beg you to do what is
                                necessary to circulate the
                                Newsletter as my Son desires
                                and to preserve this great gift
                                of the face of Jesus for
                                as long as the world exists.

                            People in generations to come
                                will look to the face of Jesus
                                and know from the story
                                how beautifully I once
                                appeared here.

                            Why are you so selfish,
                                that you preserve your buildings,
                                you plan your estates
                                and you pay so little heed
                                for the preservation of what
                                happened here and preserving
                                this building and site
                                for the future generations
                                of my children.

                            Do you not hear the messages of
                                God the Father pleading
                                with you to help build
                                this place to a garden
                                to help the world and
                                fallen man cast from
                                the garden of paradise.

                            I am the new Eve
                                and my Son is the New Adam.

                            We appeared in this garden
                                delivering the message of
                                 these end times
                                and you will not listen,
                                nor do you plan for the future,
                                nor do you recognize the fact
                                that God from all time and
                                places picked this spot to gift
                                the world with our precious
                                apparitions.

                            You build your monuments and
                                your sports stadiums ---
                            You do not spare the funds.

                            You build bridges that function
                                properly only to be torn down
                                by multi-million dollar projects
                                for the sake of beauty ---
                            But you fail to see the beauty
                                of my apparition site in
                                Florida.

                            My message today to your children
                                and the message of my Son Jesus
                                is this one. Help make reparation
                                to your God who you have offended.

                            Preserve this place as God the Father
                                desires.

                            My face was destroyed by a sniper ---
                                your state was ravaged by
                                a belt of hurricanes.

                            You hold on to your treasures
                                when in a moment you can
                                lose them and your own life
                                here below.

                            Listen to me ---
                                I am Mary your Mother,
                                Queen of this earth,
                                Mother of the Universe,
                                what more should I say?

                            2000 years ago when my Son
                                was born in a stable,
                                He could not find a place
                                in the inn.

                            2000 years later I come to the
                                earth and appear on the
                                building in Clearwater.
                                My Son Jesus appears on the
                                building in Clearwater.

                            My image head was destroyed,
                                all the money on the earth
                                and there is not money
                                to protect His image face,
                                the image window that
                                is left.

                            How do you think this pleases
                                your Father after the
                                destruction of my image face?

                            There was not room for Him in
                                the inn ---
                                2000 years later, there is
                                not room on this vast earth
                                for us to appear.

                            God picked this space.
                            God picked this place.
                                and you want it your way.

                            God has sent messages from heaven
                                and you want it your way.

                            Help protect the image face of Jesus.
                            Help preserve Our site in Florida.

 

 

Mary speaks: Tremendous graces are granted at the

Florida site for physical and spiritual healing.

 

 

  

October 8, 1997

Jesus speaks: Seedless, barren, not bringing forth fruit on the vine. I come to be heard and who pays Me heed. To a people of stiffs I address this issue, what think you when the water is gone from the trough?

Do you think you will then worship the molten calf or will you be ready for surrender then?

Oh, you thankless race, anger and wrath is the mind of your God. You do not worry, My messenger, for I am God and I speak to you. You think you are alone and I have chosen you. Your money is your god, oh people of Zion - your money in the pockets is the sound that brings you joy.

What brings Me joy is the songs of the faithful, praising and worshipping God, but I go to the tent and there is the molten calf and an abased nation of stiffs, heartless and filled with fear. I beg of you to stop now before it is too late, but you do not know of the chastisement I have in store for you - it is under the plan of the Father.

The children who walk in darkness carried a molten calf in their arms and the God of justice struck the earth.

He struck you, senseless people, because you would not listen.

I did not put you on the earth and then leave you to yourselves. I dwelt amongst you to guide you in all your ways and the people today spit on Me as they did 2,000 years before. For all these years I waited for the likes of you, My people, and why should you have more time for false joy? Joy is not in the molten calf. It is in the words of the Savior.

My Words are your truth, yet you try to wash them away as hearsay and of no importance.

My Word is the Word of God mighty and true. I have been ignored and defiled in My Word. I smite you, My senseless race. I allow the dragon to devour your young for you are the senseless race. I allow the dragon to devour your young for you are the senseless children of Eve.

Debased, proud and dead, really dead in your hearts.

I give you sunshine and rain and you want flowers and glory.

The glory is Mine or I will have to continue to listen to the wailing widow, a barren branch, a company of stiffs.

Ignore Me no longer senseless ones. My hand is upon you. It will come down and wipe out the senseless virgins, the ones singing to the molten calf.

Rachel could hear the slaughter of her children and she wept such bitter tears. The Lady Clothed as the Sun bore the barren race; they did not come to her grace-filled womb.

The thankless race marched into a pit of doom and destruction.

As I was pressed in the garden watching the days at hand, as I was squeezed, what came forth from My pores was the saving Blood for the children of Zion and when they ate from the land they feasted on rich food and strong drinks, the candy of the earth and it made them sick - sick to the death of their souls and the Lady Clothed as the Sun heard the cries of her sick children. I give you the medicine for the sick children in these writings and they chase you and make you fall to the ground. I watched you skin your knees when you carried the scrolls that contained My letters of love, My words from the depths of My Heart. You fell as I once did on the way to Calvary. I fell, I skinned My knees, My Body burned and I got up and went to the end.

The end was the beginning for the children of Zion for at that hill My cross was planted erect, a tree of life, and the juice that was squeezed 'till there was no more from the one "Son of Man, the Son of God", was the juice of the Man. It was His saving Blood.

They pressed Me in the Garden of Olives and I bled for the thankless race. They hung Me on a tree on the hill of Calvary. When I gave them the New Eve they chose the molten calf. They spit on My Mother, they ignored the visitations. She came and gave to the children to remind them of their covenant with God.

Oh senseless ones, so many will now fall, for I hung there and to the right was one and to the left another. The one was saved; the other was cursed. You picked from the tree when you should have obeyed your Father. He gave you His will. He said, "You may eat of all the trees in the garden but not this one." and you continually ate of the forbidden fruit. I warned you, My children, and you chased My messengers and made them run. I gave to you My Book of Life, My Bible, and you ate the sick fruit and it made you so sick you wanted to die but you kept eating when I told you the end was near and now that the end has come, what do you say for yourself? You ignored the Lady Clothed as the Sun. She appeared in all glory and splendor and so many months later so few go to her site to even see her. So is it My fault or yours our money does not come to publish your books and tell the world about the Woman in Florida? It is not My fault, I am God. I am the faultless One.

You want joy. I have no joy for the likes of you, My children of Zion, you have usurped My thrones and treated My body as rubbish. I am God. I come in the Eucharist and I am ignored. I speak no longer. The days that follow will be the days to cleanse this earth.

I am angered beyond all anger for the way My Mother has been treated in Florida by the thankless race. They have worshipped the molten calf and ignored the Lady of Light, the Lady Clothed as the Sun, the Lady of Fatima in the Americas, Our Lady of Guadalupe, bringing forth her children. The good will suffer with the bad; the wheat will be separated from the darnel (weeds). You walked like little stiff men with your haughty hearts. Your heads were your gods. I gave you great minds to comprehend My mysteries and you used your minds to worship false gods and make movies that defile My priesthood. What of your minds? I do not even have energy to tell you how unworthy you used the mind, the intellect I gave you. You used this great faculty to commit the worst sins, and My head was crowned with the sharpest thorns for your sick earth. Oh, you squeezed the Blood from the Son of Man. You pressed that Man in the garden, when He knew this race of this day.

I now see the Woman on the building, My Mother, so loving to the children I gave her and the mean ones threw acid on her face. Oh, you race of vile hearts and thankless ways. I will clothe the holy ones in the white robes of glory. The thankless ones I will turn over to the red men that will hand them over to the keeper of the pit and their bodies will be burned in the burning sulfur of the pool of death. Come, My children of light, your Mother called you through the consecration. She showed you the way home to My Heart. She carried a lighted lamp and lighted your way in the darkness. You were not foolish like the virgins that carried a lamp without a light. Your light for the lamp was My life alive in your hearts. When the darkest night comes you will know the flames of My love alive in your lighted hearts, burning with the fire from the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I give you the fuel, My faithful virgins. I gave you the fuel to light your lamps that in the dark night that lies ahead, you will still shine as a beacon light, a light of intense brightness no matter how dark the night. You will not die for your refuge is the fire of the Sacred Heart and you gave your heart to the New Eve, the pure and Immaculate One and she took you to the Heart of your Savior. She took you home and you dwelt within the chamber of My Heart and you were protected from the evil one in these last days. You tried to spread this consecration. It is the key that leads to the place of refuge. So many camps the devil told men to prepare and they labored in vain, for the Word was had in dwelling in Our Hearts. You would find refuge and they missed the message and busied themselves with the work of the evil one.

I say to you what refuge survived when Noah built his ark? Only those on the ark survived the great flood. You prepare your earth. When My Word was to prepare your hearts. Then again, they worshipped the church building, the grounds and the wood and their hearts were left as cold vaults. I beg you, My beauteous ones, to beg the men to prepare their hearts before it is too late. Only the Ark of the Covenant will be the means of survival in this dark age. When the moon turns to blood they will run away frightened and their buildings will be like cold vaults - only the hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will survive.

You were willful and too busy to know the story. The story is this: There is but one home; it is the Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My Mother is the gatekeeper. It is through her Immaculate Heart you enter. She is the singular vessel, a New Eve, a Woman Clothed as the Sun, a doorway to the everlasting abyss of Light, the Light of the World, the Sacred Eucharistic Heart of the Son of Man.

There was not room for Me in the Inn and there is not room for Me in the hearts of many and what can I say - they will die. I gave them the book of life. I gave them the Man who hung on a tree to save them. I gave them Myself, truly present in the Eucharist, the Eucharist and My Word I gave them. I gave to them My Mother - the way to enter into My Heart and they were haughty and proud. I was born in a stable in Bethlehem for you, My men. I am the Light of the World. The foolish virgins had no oil for their lamps and they went out. And you could hear the wailing cries of her children being slaughtered in the dark night. Oh, the Lady Clothed as the Sun warned them to come to her heart and the Heart of her Son (the Light of the World) and they went to the molten calf and they died a brutal death.

Messenger:     My dear friends

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church.  


  

    On December 5, 1996 - 
8 years ago Jesus appeared
to me at the point of death His
mouth moving, He was in excruciating
pain, I cried and could hardly stand
it.

From a previous daily message:

I saw Him at the point of death on the cross 
December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening."

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church. 

   He was smiling and His
mouth moved and moved and moved.
He looked happy and the vision was
all aglow. He gave me a message to sit
in the first pew and He appeared
and talked about 20 minutes, He
was smiling.

    May God bless you in this
most beautiful season. 

With lots of love and thanks,

                                Rita
