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.


"Deliver us, Lord, from every evil. . ."

In the Our Father we say:
"Deliver us from evil."

Jesus speaks: The devil is real.

You are at battle, you are at war.

The prayer to St. Michael used to be said after Mass.

I wish you to do this.

I tell you of demonic attacks.

The devil attacks the emotions. From the 1st writing in Blue Book I I say "His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day."

Revelation 12: 11

They 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.

Jesus speaks: When you feel hatred, anger and division, many times you are being attacked by the devil. You can feel division regarding your very best friend, the Movement, the Church and the world, those that you must remain one with to do My work. The devil plays up little idiosyncrasies, he drains the emotions, he helps to flare the tempers through events, phone calls, remarks, happenings in your lives. He knows what innocent remarks made by some will cause enormous jealousy and irritations in others. He weaves the plot, sets the events, interferes with important conversation through malcommunication of phones, faxes, mail, whatever. He is the master of deceit and he weaves a snarling plan.

I tell you, you will have to have your mind fixed on God and truly love Him or you may be carried away by the devil's tricks. Heaven is a reward promised to those who love and serve the Lord.

Hell, My children, is worse than you can ever imagine. The absence of God, the desire within to have Him, the knowing that you are there in hell forever without God, are all horrors far beyond anything you can imagine, worse than your hardest day in life. The souls of hell are consumed with hatred and anger, the pain so great to not have God, the isolation is more than you can imagine. Hell is hell, eternal damnation. If young people could see hell, if they knew the reality of heaven and hell, they would turn their lives around. Where is the training for My young ones? They are trained to seek their treasures in the world. Oh, I cry to you, I sweat My Blood in the garden for your world today. Oh, I warn you in these revelations.

Satan goes after the jugular vein. He tries to trick some through alcohol and other mood altering substances that affect the mind. My children, the devil is in that addictive abuse of your body. My children, he tries to weaken your defenses by lack of sleep, by demanding events, by overwork and over indulgence, through songs and people and holidays that make your hearts feel extra emotion. He is a master to get you to sin and he wants you to lose your soul. He wants the holy ones to quit praying, especially as a body united to the Mass. He can make your body feel weak, he can create an energy at bed time to keep you working. The devil is a master to get you to not do the Father's will.

The devil works in events, he plants little things in the mind, he uses some innocent parties' remarks that will cause a problem in others or help create jealousies. You are at battle and it will get worse.

When your mood changes, when you feel a rush to act impulsively to settle a problem right away, when you begin hating your best friend, when little things the person does seem overpowering, when you feel that you cannot communicate and there is a BIG BLACK WALL and you need to end the relationship and escape, the devil may very well have a paralyzing grip on your emotions to cause havoc and hatred in your life. You must be on guard, for he is attacking interiorly. He can have people down for months on their backs with lack of energy and depression. Some of the little things have to be let go of when you are dealing with others. You have a lot of idiosyncrasies of your own. You won't find perfection in others, they may be trying and you come and "attack" them because of a case the devil has conjured up in your mind. He is a "trickster". He wants to destroy your love relationships, create disharmony, stop the work of the Shepherds of Christ Movement and the work in the Church. He wants confusion, lack of productivity and hatefulness. Love will be the only answer. Love always endures. I do not tell you to tolerate abuse and hatred, you must love the sinner, hate the sin and not put yourself in the occasion of sin if at all possible. Pray for the sinner.

My children, the devil is real. Pray to be possessed by God. When divided, pray 9 Hail Marys and pray together. He wants the holy ones stopped. You are under attack. You must FIGHT emotional attacks by Satan. YOU MUST LOVE.

You need grace. There is tremendous grace poured out in the Mass and before the tabernacle. Pray the Holy Spirit Novena on arising if you want added help fighting the devil. Praying even a short prayer hourly will help. Praying the Rosary and 9 Hail Marys are weapons against Satan. Call on St. Michael and don't give in to the big black walls Satan can create in your minds, making you feel there is no solution. I am God. I will help you. I am mighty, there is always a solution, I am God. I am in charge of things, but you may really suffer and have to endure it without sinning. If you do sin, be humble, admit the wrong, go to confession. Pray for the priest, say you are sorry to God and each other. When you sin, the devil wants you to be prideful and not admit the wrong and not ask for forgiveness of the sin. Forgive others and love. That is the key. From the Our Father,
"Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen."


Today is the anniversary of the tabernacle message December 29, 1993, that was circulated and still should be circulated far and wide.

Today is the anniversary of the All-Night Message given December 29, 1996, about 12 days after Mary appeared on the building (in the Apostles' Manual).

December 29, 1999 - Second Message

Given December 28, 1999


Jesus speaks: You say, "I like drinking, I like sex, I like video games." Do you think you will handle your problems by taking a drink, having sex, going shopping? Do you engage in addictions to numb the pain? Does your addiction hide the problem? Can you live without it? Do you use this addiction to alter your bad moods or make yourself feel good? Does it regulate your body? The devil gets in through addictive behavior. The devil gains influence, you become less free, you are enslaved to a drug or whatever. The worst is in the after affects. You experience depressing behavior. The body is controlled by the addiction. You think of the time you will use it, you use it, you suffer the after effects. Many in your world are influenced by the devil in uppers and downers, pills, liquor, drugs, sugar and so forth.

And so it goes that this addictive, mood swing behavior is a part of the family life. Children are taught to rely on things to affect and alter their moods. Children grow up thinking this is normal.

Alcoholism is a disease that cripples people and families alike. So is drug abuse and other addictive behaviors: sex, workaholism, whatever. What are you attached to? All should analyze themselves to see if they are in defeating life patterns that can cause problems for others. Some in authority force their sick ways on those under them.

I cry to you, for you will suffer soon in ways you never dreamed possible.

The sick will become "sicker" as the devil uses all means to cause disharmony and bloodshed. Only by doing as We have told you and praying, including praying the rosary, and being able to turn to God, will you survive. The ground work is set, the steps are built. You remain at the bottom of the mountain attached to your ways.

I will allow you to be tested and your money won't mean a thing. You will see that money will not bring peace of mind or endurance. I am fed up with your evil ways. I love you so, and I want your souls to be saved. Oh, if I could gather you under My wing as a mother gathers her chicks and press you close to My Heart and shower you with My gifts, but you are deaf and blind and you do not hear My voice.

I cry to you, and you will not listen.

My Father is finished with the antics.

My earth, you smite Me, and your ways are not of God. I spit you from My mouth. Only those who have obeyed will be saved. My commandments and My Word I make clear to you. My love I give you. 2000 years after My birth you do not hear Me, My world. You cause Me pain. I sweat Blood in the garden for your sins.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: When we suffer trials, how can we share these trials with each other in the greatest love?
